  • How to cross stitch . Pear Cross Stitch Pattern - Step 1
    Step 1

    Either design is 13 stitches wide and 18 stitches high.
    How many strands of thread you need depends on the type of fabric, the coarser the weave the more strands you'll need. For the black back stitch use fewer strands, for the green back stitch use more.

    Step 2

    Start on the right side (if right-handed) with the green, half cross-stitches up and half cross-stitches down, working your way to the left.
    Next the pink/blush colour, the stem and the leaf.
    Lastly, embroider the back stitch.

    Start on the right side (if right-handed) with the "pulp" colour.
    Secondly, the "darker pulp", next the pips and stem in brown.
    Now embroider the leaf in green, use black to back-stitch the contours of the leaf, stem and core.
    Finish by back-stitching the pear with multiple strands of the green.
