Free embroidery and knit patterns

Embroidery Pattern Book Coming Soon!

I am currently working on my first book of embroidery patterns based on some of the bead embroidery I have done. It started out as a sketchbook entry for the Sketchbook Project. I never did finish my book and they may not even be taking entries anymore. I registered my book but never finished it. I am still plugging away at it and once it's done, I'll scan it myself. These patterns will be free and I am encouraging users to share their photos of finished pieces for me to share on this webpage.

This is my first ever cross stitch pattern. It's free since it's my first one and I'm not sure if my coloring is correct. The design program I used may not be calibrated to the actual floss colors. For now, here is a PDF guide to DMC floss colors and their closest RGB/CMYK equivalents I could find. I created this by sampling photos of DMC flosses in Adobe Illustrator. These may not be exact, but for designing purposes may work. Free Download!: DMC floss to RGB - CMYK - Hex More to come!

This hat pattern was inspired by the Netflix series Squid Game, a series based on rich people betting on which human players will survive deadly contests based on childrens schoolyard games. The symbols on this hat are from the candy game in which the contestants were tasked with trimming a round candy down to the stamped shape without breaking the candy. The contestants were given a needle to use as a carving tool. The larger center shape is the squid game play grid that is drawn on the ground similar to hop scotch.
