Oak Branch Cross-Stitch Pin


More acorn love this week--and another free cross-stitch chart! This Oak Branch design uses just three colors of DMC embroidery floss--898 Very Dark Coffee Brown, 422 Light Hazelnut Brown, and 3820 Dark Straw. It's simple to stitch, but I think the finished design has a detailed look. You can follow the chart below or click here to download a printable chart and color key.


I really like this bar pin setting from the Etsy shop Kailea. If you stitch the design on 18-count Aida, it will fit perfectly. You can use another setting if you like, or stitch the design on 14- or 11-count Aida and make your finished embroidery into an ornament.

    1. It's the silver one. It's listed as 142ST in the Kailea Etsy shop.
