Follow the stitch guide (shown here) to embroider the pattern in chain stitch, French knots, fly stitch, back stitch, stem stitch, star stitch and single chain stitch. Refer to the embroidery stitch glossary as needed for the stitch diagrams.
Use two strands of the six-strand embroidery floss in your needle when working the design actual size, or use three strands of the floss if you are enlarging the design and need a heavier thread line.
To finish the project in a hoop, as shown in the model in step 1, see the Hoop Framing tutorial for complete directions.
