Stitchable Afghan: A Free Pattern That's Out of this World

07 October, 2016

Stitchable Afghan: A Free Pattern That's Out of this World

Today we’re invading your day with this space-inspired cross stitch pattern. Pick your favorite stitchable afghan (we recommend the Lady Elizabeth stitchable afghan), and you’ll find aliens, rocket ships, astronauts, and planets orbiting your blanket. The pattern calls for using DMC Mouliné embroidery floss, so you know the colors will be vibrant and beautiful.

This out-of-this-world pattern will create an afghan that is both adorable and winsome. It’s one of the reasons why we adore stitchable materials, because instead of ambling around a store, you can instead, create something with your own two hands. It allows you to gift loved ones with thoughtful goods that they couldn’t get anywhere else.
