A monochrome cross-stitch pattern is a type of cross-stitch design that uses only one color of embroidery floss to create the entire design. Cross-stitch is a form of embroidery that involves making X-shaped stitches to create a pattern or picture on a piece of fabric. In a monochrome cross-stitch pattern, you would typically choose a single color of floss and use various amount of stitching to create different elements of the design.
Monochrome cross-stitch patterns can be quite intricate and beautiful, even with the limitation of using just one color. The shading and depth in the design are achieved by using more or less stitches in a certain area of the chosen color.
This type of pattern is often used to create subtle and sophisticated pieces of embroidery, and it's a great choice for those who prefer a minimalist or monochromatic aesthetic.
