What is Blackwork?

While the technique began by primarily using black thread on light colored fabrics (hence the name), Blackwork is a marriage of embroidery and cross stitch and is often referred to as counted thread embroidery. Using a series of backstitches, you follow the pattern by counting just as you would a cross stitch pattern.

Your PDF pattern is available for a download and includes the following:

  • An illustration of the design
  • An easy to read chart 
  • A color key with thread recommendations and the amount you will need of each color
  • Tips to ensure your project goes smoothly
  • Stitching instructions (for cross stitch, quarter stitch and backstitch)

Finished, this design is 83 stitches by 42 stitches or 6 inches by 3 inches on 14 ct. aida or 28 evenweave.
