Worked in wonderful color-changing variegated thread for the body of the cross and a coordinating solid color for the edging, this design brings to mind the classic Rose cathedral windows and the lovely Tiffany stained glass works.

The individual blocks of color are formed by simple cluster stitches making this pattern work up super quick.

Finishing with a spray of ordinary laundry spray starch produces a soft bookmark, and cross may also be more firmly starched to make great hanging ornaments for your Christmas tree or for a suncatcher in your window.

Be warned: this is one of those β€˜bet you can’t make just one’ patterns! Once you get the design worked you will be returning to it again and again for quick little thank-you or just-because-I-love-you gifts.
