Tinctorial Plants Dahlia Cross Stitch Pattern
This red dahlia is a cross stitch embroidery pattern chart derived from our spectacular project dedicated to Tinctorial Plants in the Museums and Heritage Collection.
The latin name of this flower is credited to the Swedish botanist Andreas Dahl.
The plant is native to Mexico and arrived in Europe at the end of the 18th century.
The petals of the darker flowers create gorgeous violets, garnets and dark reds.
The full colour pattern chart is printed on large A3 sheets with all the necessary explanations.
It is presented in a Sajou pouch.
Size of motif: 77 points wide by 200 points high.
When embroidered on 12 count/centimetre linen fabric the finished dimensions are 12.8 x 33.3cm.
We recommend our Cyclamen Linen which highlights the motif.
