This Etsy listing is for a cross stitch needlepoint pattern, not a finished needlepoint project. The pattern says “my cats are assholes” and the letters of this pattern each feature a kitty cat that helps make up the letter. I got the design for the letters from the Better Home and Gardens Alphabets and Borders book.

On the pattern, the cats are all two colors, but for more advanced cross stitchers, or daring beginners, you can customize them to resemble your own furry asshole children (see photo 3--I made three different kitties, one of which is a Maine Coon so I made the end of the tail a little bit bigger on the darkest kitty to help make it more like my friend’s cat.).

Most of the pattern calls for a cross stitch. The black lines on the pattern help to differentiate parts of the cats so they look better, these parts should be back stitched. The white dots are the eyes of the cats (not all cats have these dots since some are facing back). These dots should be french knots.

If you want to change the pattern colors to match your own cats, I recommend picking out the colors you will use for the cats first, then pick an outline color that will show up next to all the ‘fur’ colors, because some of the cats have outlining around the face or to show definition of legs or tails. Then pick a color for the letters. You may also want to outline around the letters to make them stand out more. against the cats.

In the third picture you will see what the design can look like when finished. Using 14 count fabric, the pattern ended up being 9 1/2” x just under 4”.

The colors used in this pattern include DMC 613, DMC 519, DMC 612, DMC BLANC, DMC 3790, DMC 435, DMC 743, DMC 728 and DMC 310.

The pattern is 134 x 57. There is a DMC color chart for the pattern. The pattern and color chart should print out on one piece of paper. It is best to print this pattern in color, but the chart has symbols on it if you choose to print it out in black and white.

If the exact colors aren't available in your area please select ones close to them, or feel free to choose your own colors. If you need help with the colors please let me know.

The pattern is available as a .pdf download and should easily print out on a standard 8 1/2” x 11” piece of paper. You may need to download Adobe to view the image if you own a PC, or you can use Preview if you own a Mac. If you want the pattern to print out larger please adjust your printer settings.

Custom pattern requests accepted when possible.

Thanks for looking and happy stitching!
