Fjord Ponies

Regular price $18.00 $0.00

This sampler started out life as a sweater!

My Mum, Cindy Peterson, designs Scandinavian styled knitted sweaters and accessories under the company name Norsk Needlework. Her Wild Blue Horses sweater featured Norwegian Fjord Ponies and Tree of Life motifs on a background of snowflakes and angels. As these fine-gauge motifs work so well for embroidery, she chose to rework things in that medium. Her Fjord Ponies sampler is the result.

You can find and purchase her sweater and accessories pattern at her site: Norsk Needlework.

Since her sampler pattern will find itself at home better amongst other cross stitch charts, she's permitting me to handle the marketing and distribution.

Stitched with seven shades of Vikki Clayton's Hand-dyed Silks on Vintage Sugar Maple 36 count by Lakeside Linens. These silks were unavailable for a time, but as of Fall of 2020, Vikki Clayton has started making those silks again. You can find them via her website

296 x 296 stitch count.

Designed and stitched by Cynthia Peterson.

Pattern Keeper Notes: 

  • There is a lot of backstitching that won't show up in the normal mode, but you can see in it the "View PDF" mode.
  • Initially the grid won't make sense, because the small chart with the personalization alphabet doesn't fit into the larger rectangle. Watch the video it suggests and remove the alphabet grid. The remainder of the chart will be imported.

If you select the PDF version of this chart, upon completing your order, you will be able to immediately download the chart. You'll also get an email with a link. You will need Adobe Reader or an equivalent program to open the file. It goes without saying that the file is for personal use by the purchaser and cannot be transferred, shared, posted, resold, etc. There will be no shipping charges added if all items in your cart are PDF only.
