This is the first release in a series of Zodiac cross stitch patterns. Since I started charting the series during Gemini’s time I thought it was only fair that they go first.
Gemini (♊) is the third astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Gemini. Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this sign between May 21 and June 20.
Each block in the series is 45 x 45 stitches so they can be used together or individually and be interchangeable. On their own they’re the perfect size for an ornament, a card, or a scented sachet. You can group several symbols together for a family sampler or stitch all 12 for an annual sampler. So many stitchy possibilities.
You can customize and stitch however you’d like, each Zodiac symbol’s PDF file will include 5 individual chart; the four you see in the preview pane above plus one with just the backstitching outline. I intentionally removed the floss key from the patterns so that everyone’s piece will be unique. You can stitch it in one, two, or three colors, use variegated threads or metallics, etc. For those that are curious what colors I used in charting; Black (310), Lemon (307), and Dark Lemon (444).
Energetic Gemini is bright and multicolored, but the sign’s signature shade is yellow. Optimistic and young at heart, Geminis have a cheery and warm disposition that is complemented by their color. What’s more, yellow promotes communication, and you love to talk.
I’ll be releasing these Zodiac cross stitch patterns throughout the summer via Craftsy, and by the time my kids start school in the fall they’ll all be out there in the world for stitching.

Enjoy the first pattern and happy stitching!
