Spooks & Spells Scary Cross Stitch Pattern


Looking for a scary cross stitch to make for Halloween? This witchy “Spooks & Spells” sampler is a great counted cross stitch pattern for intermediate stitchers as it’s got only four colours and no backstitch, just lots of spooky letters!



My latest witchy Halloween cross stitch pattern is a Halloween quote with the phrase ‘Spooks & Spells’. It’s a four colour Halloween sampler in my spooky cross stitch series. A counted cross stitch for intermediate stitchers, this scary cross stitch features a witch’s hat, a black cat, candles and eerie looking decoration on the letters, including stripy witch stockings and ironwork. Spook up your décor with this Halloween xstitch in time for the holidays!

This pattern can be stitched by a beginner but ideally not as a first cross stitch pattern, as there’s a lot of little bits to stitch (but no backstitch). The finished cross stitch fits snugly into a 6” wooden embroidery frame when stitched on 14 count white Aida.

Please note this is a counted cross stitch pattern in PDF format only and no fabric, DMC floss or other materials are included in the listing. If you want the frame to look like the one in the photo, please purchase our popular frame wrapping tutorial separately, for complete step-by-step instructions in a full colour photo PDF.
