Raising the Flag is a cross stitch pattern depicting the raising of the American Flag during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War 2.
The stylistic look was created by converting the black and white image to a one-color cross stitch pattern (aka "monochromatic") that maintains the quality of the original image.
The white portion of the pattern is creating by stitching a dark color onto a light-colored fabric. Therefore, you could use any color fabric instead of white if you're looking to create something different.
There are only 7,796 stitches in the pattern which makes for a faster project than you might expect.
This cross stitch pattern is suitable for both the beginner cross stitcher and the more advanced. My philosophy is "one stitch at a time."
Stitch Count: 200 x 200
Stitching areas are rounded up to the nearest half-inch (example a pattern that is 10.35" x 10.72" is rounded to 10.5" x 11") to ensure you get enough fabric. Don't forget to add at least a few inches to the overall width and length of the fabric to give yourself enough room for framing!
