Aries (♈) fiery, energetic, impassioned, and rules the color red. Considered a stimulant, red evokes action and confidence, which you exhibit in true Arian style. The color is also an attention grabber, and you’re not afraid to wear it.
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 they were DMC 939 and 777 (my oldest son is an Aries and he picked the colors for this one, I’m actually in the middle of stitching a set for him in these colors and I’ll have progress photos to share with you soon)
Ruled by warrior planet Mars and symbolized by the Ram, Aries is the first and most action-oriented zodiac sign, and a natural-born leader. Red-hot Aries is impossible to ignore. Full of energy and highly competitive, the Ram is both brave and reckless at the same time. Expect their speech to be direct and powerful — and don’t you dare disagree with Aries, because they’re always first to the fight.
Thank you for your amazing support.
Enjoy the pattern and happy stitching!
