Hey, Steotch fans, can we talk for a second? Will you promise to carefully read this entire listing before purchasing this pattern?

This is the pattern (i.e. the chart and instructions, 12 pages of them delivered in a PDF) for you to use to make your own Kiss the Cook sampler, just like the one we posted on our website, which subsequently went viral. This is NOT a finished piece.

This pattern is very challenging, and requires extensive cross stitching experience. To stitch this sampler, you will be blending different colored threads and making very small fractional stitches. These details are explained in the Instructions included with your purchase, but the pattern itself is not designed for those who are not comfortable with advanced stitching techniques and complicated charts.

We are always happy to answer questions and provide support to our customers if they have any questions - but we will not be able to provide the extensive support that would be required to get a newbie through this project.

If you're a ninja, it's also really fun and cool and we hope you buy several. :-D

This pattern is stitched on 16 count Aida fabric, and uses 33 unique thread colors. Evenweave fabrics are not suitable for this sampler; you must use Aida. We also strongly recommend a color printer.

The pattern is a 12 page PDF file, including both color and black and white symbols, a backstitching guide, and a 4 page tutorial to explain and guide you through some of the techniques we used in the finished piece. The legends refer to 33 DMC colors. Please read all instructions thoroughly.

The design area of final sampler is 4" x 6.3" on 16 count cotton aida cloth, perfect for framing in a 5"x7" frame.

THIS PATTERN IS AN INSTANT DOWNLOAD - after you order the file, it will become available to you immediately for download through your Etsy downloads page.

TL; DR: This is not a finished piece, it's a set of really challenging instructions. Beginning stitchers are strongly cautioned.

STEOTCH samplers have been featured on the front page of many of the web's finest establishments, including BoingBoing, Neatorama, Mashable, Regretsy, the Huffington Post, the Official Star Wars Blog.
