Elizabeth Ranicar 1845 Sampler Pattern
A delicate English sampler from 1845. Elizabeth was only eight years old when she created this little beauty. The soft muted silks are such a delight and make stitching this sampler a real joy. The original was stitched with silk on linen. A picture of the original is in the chart.
You can find the kit here:
Design Area: 143 stitches wide by 143 stitches high.
Stitched Area: 9 inches wide by 9 inches high
Fabric Size: 15 inches wide by 15 inches high
The measurements given in the pattern are for 16/32ct fabric. Aida works well as it is all cross stitches. Two strands of floss are used for all stitches. There are more fabric size options listed in the images and the chart.
The pattern consists of a color image of the finished design, instructions, and a list of floss colors; A color & black and white symbol chart spread over several A4 sheets for printing, and a single page chart for those that use in Pattern Keeper.
Thank you and happy stitching!
