Threads and colours

This pattern shows 14 colours:

  • 10 references of DMC stranded cotton
  • 4 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 4 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 Platinium) using one strand of cotton over one thread of fabric.

Recommended Fabric 32 count Zweigart ref Belfast colour Platinium or 16 count Aida, dimensions 30x15 cm (12 x 6 in)  if worked as a miniature in 2 parts or 40x 30 cm (16x12 in) if worked with two strands of cotton over two threads of fabric.
