American Beauty Needlepoint creates a mosaic portrait of the rose, using only 8 needlepoint stitches and 8 overdyed cotton flosses. The chart is laid out like a cross stitch chart or a needlepoint chart. Because it is stitched with stranded cottons, it can be sized down to 24 ct. Congress cloth, using fewer strands.
18 ct. Victorian Red canvas
Gentle Arts, Weeks Dye Works and Crescent Colours flosses
Finished size 12″ x 12″
Design size 216 x 216

I love this pattern. I think this is my favourite yet. 8 different stitches and 8 different colours. It turned out beautifully
Regina Giles –
I did this design several years ago. Everyone who has seen it marvels at its beauty. Indeed, every time I walk by it, I am impressed all over again at the incredible results of an unusual technique using just 8 stitches and 8 colors. I think it’s my favorite piece of all that I have stitched.
