Beauvais a Cross Stitch Pattern by Gracewood Stitches

All stitches are cross stitch.

My inspiration for 'Beauvais' comes from my love of textiles. From far Eastern intricately woven silks to vintage utilitarian cottons, linens and wool fabrics, I am mesmerized by the patterns that can be achieved. This is why I decided to design my own 'fabrics' for cross stitch or needlepoint.

To begin a collection that will be called 'Vintage Textiles' I chose a pattern with a feel of vintage French fabric, so for my first 'cross stitch textile' I have created one with a Gallic flavor and chose the name Beauvais, after the town in northern France. I also like the fact that 'beau vais' translates to Goodwill.

This pattern uses the Assissi technique of stitching the background and leaving the design area open.

To needlepoint this pattern stitch the open areas in white.
