Gone fishing - color version (large pattern)
COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY PERRETTE SAMOUILOFF
Look at these children having a happy time at the seaside. They are fishing for every possible kind of fish, some for lobster, others for shrimp. Two more children are spreading out fish nets while yet another boy has just caught a big fish with his fishing rod.
This is the full color version of the pattern, in a lovely palette of blue, green and orange floss. Also available is a very different interpretation of this pattern entirely stitched in blue monochrome.
Designer Perrette Samouiloff makes an expert use of stitches (in particular a number of three-quarter stitches (in combination with cross stitch and backstitch) to render the detail of each fish, and of the light playing on their scales.
The pattern shown here is is the larger version. The designer also offers a smaller chart if you have less time for stitching.
