Shamrock Biscornu and Fob - Free Cross Stitch Pattern!


St. Patrick's Day is fast approaching, and I thought a little design to celebrate would be in order. This co-ordinates with the Thistle Stitching Accessories set I made for St. Andrew's day, but I have restrained myself and kept it to just the biscornu and fob this time - at least for this freebie!

I've chosen both a subdued "antique" and a "bright" colourway for this design. It is currently being model stitched by a very kind volunteer, so I don't have pictures yet. Like most of my biscornu designs, it only uses three colours, which makes coming up with your own colour scheme really easy :o)

There are two alternatives for the back of the design - one for Ireland, and one for Luck!

There's a matching fob with this design too, included in the chart pack!




If you would like a copy of the chart, please comment below and leave an email address unless yours is visible in your blog profile. Some people ask for charts but I have no way of getting them to them :o( Charts are sent in PDF format.

If you do stitch this design, I'd love to see the finished article - and there will be a prize for any I show on my blog!

Although there is no charge for this chart, a donation to the MS Trust for this chart would be appreciated. Pennies will do - and you can make payment via the link in my sidebar or by clicking here

There is no obligation to make a donation - you will be sent the chart whether or not you choose to make a donation, as I appreciate that some people are not in a financial position to do so.
