Threads and colours

This pattern shows 6 colours:

  • 4 references of DMC stranded cotton
  • 2 references of ATALIe threads (counterpart in DMC references available on the chart)
ATALIe threads are shaded hand-dyed cotton (or silk) threads by French designer ATALIe; their subtle shading gives a special outcome to your stitching. We advise you to buy the mini-pack of ATALIe threads we have prepared to match this pattern. See below the "related products" section to buy the right mini-pack of ATALIe threads. You will need 1 pack of threads if you choose to work this design as a miniature or 2 packs if you prefer to work with 2 strands of cotton over 2 threads of fabrics.

The model on the picture has been stitched on a 32 count linen fabric (Zweigart ref Belfast colour Fairy Dust) using one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric.

Recommended Fabric 32 count Zweigart ref Belfast colour Fairy Dust or 16 count Aida, dimensions 20x25 cm (8 x 10 in)  if worked as a miniature or 35x 40 cm (14x16 in) if worked with two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric.
