Moonlit Mountains - Counted Cross Stitch Pattern (X-Stitch PDF)
Thanks for visiting my store! This cross-stitch pattern was personally and lovingly designed by me!
This is a beautiful but easy cross-stitch pattern. It only uses six colors and there’s no confetti stitching except for the stars. This pattern comes in blue tones as shown in the first image, but you could substitute any colors you would like as long as they progress from dark to light. I’ve shown some alternate color options in the images above. Let me know if you would like me to send you any of the alternate color combinations. Another option is to substitute silver metallic floss for the stars. You could even stitch the stars as French knots if you would like.

De-speckling (Confetti) and Minimization of Threads: When I am creating my cross-stitch patterns, I try to group stitches of a particular color together so it's easier to stitch. I know it's annoying to start a new thread just to stitch one speck and then weave back in. As much as possible, I've tried to avoid this. I also try to minimize the number of thread colors required, without sacrificing detail. (Beware of sellers who don't tell you ahead of time how many colors are required to complete a pattern!)
This Listing Includes: A PDF computer file containing the pattern. The pattern will include a color image of the completed project, the pattern itself, and a legend which lists the colors and lengths of the DMC embroidery floss you will need to purchase.
This Listing Does Not Include: Instructions on how to cross-stitch, embroidery floss, cross-stitch fabric or Aida cloth, cross-stitch needles, or a physical print-out of the pattern. This is not a kit or finished piece. Nothing will be mailed. If you have trouble printing the PDF (extremely rare), I cannot troubleshoot your computer, printer, or software. Remember that most office stores offer inexpensive quality printing services in color as well as black and white.
You Will Need: The colors and quantities of DMC embroidery floss indicated on the pattern, cross-stitch fabric (even weave) or Aida cloth of your choice, a cross-stitch needle, access to a home printer or a Kinkos store, and a basic knowledge of how to cross-stitch and back stitch. The embroidery floss length estimates for each color assumes that you are making 14 stitches per inch. If your stitches are smaller, you'll need less floss; if your stitches are larger, you will need more floss.
I accept all major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, & Discover), Paypal, Etsy gift cards, and money orders. If you need to pay by money order, you should know that you won't be able to download the pattern until your payment clears.
