This beautifully painted watercolor Halloween pumpkin may be smiling, but it definitely is NOT a humorous or friendly smile! So perfect for a Halloween cross stitch pattern that represents this scary time of year.
Our pumpkin looks a bit … menacing … don’t you think? Halloween comes from the celtic tradition of All Hollows Eve when the dead walked the world. Smart people of the day were inside their homes before nightfall with their doors and windows tightly closed. They knew it wasn’t safe to be abroad on such a wild night. Our pumpkin above would definitely cause anyone to scurry in and not come out until daylight.
To stitch our sinister pumpkin you will need 12 colors of DMC floss and he is 142 stitches wide by 164 stitches high. What an appropriate Halloween cross stitch pattern if you love this crisp, cool air and the excitement of children.
