Today’s Halloween cross stitch pattern is an evil skull centered on a crinkled, antique background. And yes, he looks really threatening and not at all happy. I don’t want to meet him – do you?
He is reminiscent of the famed pirate flag and we see movies today that make light of these savage individuals. But being on a ship and seeing a pirate flag coming over the horizon must have been a truly terrifying experience.
The skull requires 12 colors of DMC floss and measures stitches wide by 189 stitches tall. This is definitely not a warm and fuzzy Halloween cross stitch pattern. But it is definitely intriguing.
