BLACKWORK CHART BY TAM'S CREATIONS
Take a close look at this pattern, as if strolling in a beautifully designed formal garden, complete with carefully clipped boxwood hedges, sprouting fountains and carefully arranged flowerbeds, bursting with color. The overall design of the pattern consists of two overlaping squares, forming a star shape, hence the name of the pattern.
Like such a garden, each element of this pattern is carefully designed to work as an interesting part in itself, yet contributing to the design as a whole. Tam's Creations, the designer, worked the pattern mostly in cross stitch, making it easy to stitch but added an element of blackwork that lends extra refinement and lightness to the whole.
The pattern can be stitched in DMC floss colors as listed on the chart or as a monochrome pattern. It can also be stitched in your own palette of overdyed colors if you want to express some creativity. The pattern lends itself very well to this kind of adaptation.
