Description

Day of the Dead sugar skull

This pattern will enable you to reproduce the image using the medium of cross-stitch or diamond painting. The custom charting technology we developed produces the highest quality cross-stitch and diamond-art patterns available with new levels of detail and color matching to accurately reproduce the images in whatever size and color combination you prefer. Not every image will look as good with the lowest colors at extra small size but not every image needs maximum colors at extra large size. We create every combination and provide accurate mockups so you can select the pattern that is right for you.

You can be confident that the pattern you buy from us will produce a piece that you will be proud to hang on your wall or gift to a loved one, to be admired for generations to come.

Patterns are available to download in PDF format immediately after purchase and will also appear in our pattern viewer and tracking application. This is the pattern only and does not include any paper copy or the materials you need to complete the project - you can purchase these from your local crafting store or online supplier of choice and the pattern will detail the number of skeins required based on the material type and stitching style you use.

Color Palette

The complete color palette including DMC code, description and stitch count for the selected pattern is shown below. The downloaded PDF pattern or our app will give you the complete estimate of thread-skeins required based on the canvas type and number of strands used for stitching.

All our patterns are the highest quality that can be created for the given size and color constraints. Occasionally this results in some threads that are only used for a handful of stitches in a pattern but we include them because they are the best matches for those colors. You can stitch them as-is or you can use your own judgement and may decide to replace them with another similar color that is already used elsewhere in the pattern. Use our closest DMC thread-color lookup tool to select candidates for replacement.

Image Sizes

Patterns can be used with any canvas type, all that will change is the physical dimensions of the completed image. To allow for mounting a cross-stitch piece in a frame we recommend a canvas size with at least 3 additional inches on each edge.
