Simple cross stitch of a leaping dolphin stitched with just two colors of floss.
Size: 90×65 stitches
"Dolphin" is a cross stitch pattern that takes about a week to complete. 14-count Aida cloth should work well for this particular pattern. Count measures how many stitches can be made in one inch as determined by the size of the fabric weave. The stitched pattern will be about 6⅜×4⅝ inches or 16.3×11.8 centimeters. Remember to include additional space around the margin of the Aida cloth.
Floss: 3 colors
Light Gray Blue
Very Dark Baby Blue
3 different colors of DMC floss are necessary to complete the "Dolphin" pattern. An approximate conversion table is provided for other brands of floss such as Anchor, J&P Coats and Ariadna. Note that some of the required floss numbers are unavailable for Madeira, Puppets and Gamma.

Everyone has a hobby or two, you do it everyday, or use it everyday and you love doing it. I enjoy creating my own cross stitch patterns and sharing them with everyone who likes this hobby. Happy stitching!
