Free Triple Spiral Cross Stitch

I had fun stitching the free Triple Spiral Chart. Those of you who don't like stitching on dark fabric, may think I am crazy since this project involved dark navy Aida fabric, but I tried a new gridding method on this project. I used a white chalk pencil to mark my grid. I got the idea from my sister-in-law's use of chalk to mark quilting lines. It brushes right off. I even left the lines on there quite awhile after I finished stitching and it still came right off.

I stitched my projects with 2 strands of DMC 471 and I love the bright green against the dark navy. I plan to use the Triple Spiral design as part of my St. Patrick's Day decorations next year, but it would also look nice as part of a spring display.

The Triple Spiral is an interesting symbol. It is also known as the Triskele Symbol. It is an ancient symbol associated with Celtic designs. It has also been found in Buddhist writings, Lycaean coins, Isle of Man bank notes, and is the symbol of Sicily. Learn More...
