Garofano Selvatico (Wild carnations)
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY ALESSANDRA ADELAIDE NEEDLEWORKS - AAN
A beautiful nature-inspired variation on a wild carnation flower, by the talented Italian designer Alessandra Adelaide. Carnations are fine and delicate and this rendering is particularly graceful and elegant.
The beauty of this pattern is that you can make so many personal variations based on the chart. You could keep it quiet and simple, cross stitching the whole pattern in a single color, a solid or a gently overdyed tone. By contrast, you could turn it into a rich and ornamental piece, cross stitching the flowers in a different color, even adding backstitched contours to make the flowers stand out against the foliage.
Whichever way you decide to personalize your stitching, this pattern will make a beautiful cushion which you could pair with another of the pretty patterns in the series such as the Wildberry, Starflower and Rose and butterfly designs.
