Cancer (♋) are often just like their crustacean symbol, the Crab. Ruled by the emotional Moon, Cancer is a great big softie on the inside, but has a tough exterior shell for self-protection.
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 to explore and have fun with.
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, even change the number of threads for texture. I look forward to seeing everyone’s variations.
Thank you for your amazing support.
Enjoy the pattern and happy stitching!
