Modern Cross-Stitch Design

Gnome Dwarf Fantasy Cross Stitch Pattern | Monochrome Blackwork | Instant Download PDF

This cheery little Gnome is the perfect counted cross-stitch pattern for the intermediate stitcher. Only full cross-stitches are used. If you like gnomes, there's another pattern in the store called "Grumpy Gnome."

Do you use Pattern Keeper? This pattern (and all of the rest of my patterns) work great in that app!

The pattern is stitched with just one color - I recommend DMC 310 (black) but any dark color will do. I highly recommend stitching it on a white fabric as the white background will help to highlight the pattern and really make it stand out.

This is not a full-coverage cross stitch pattern. Stitching only the black parts on a light-colored fabric.

This is a fun stitch. It goes fast because you're using just one color. Moreover, once you've finished this cross stitch pattern, your friends and family won't believe it's cross stitch! The unique method of making this pattern gives it a 3-D look that will boggle your mind. You've never stitched anything like this.

Stitch Count: 169 x 316

How much fabric do you need? Stitching areas are rounded up to the nearest full inch (example a pattern that is 10.35" x 10.72" is rounded to 11" x 11") to ensure you get enough fabric. 

You'll need extra fabric around the stitched pattern to allow for framing needs. The following table calculates how much fabric you'll need for this specific pattern based on the fabric count you choose and how much extra framing fabric you want.

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 different shades and intensities of the chosen color, as well as varying the density and direction of the stitches. 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.
