Cab Calloway – from Hi-De-Ho (1934)
One of a 4-part series inspired by classic cinema and the motif of light and shadow in the darkness – whether it be from moonlight, a spotlight or the glow of the projector in a dark cinema.
This piece is done in “grid-stitch,” a new method and alternative to cross stitch that uses backstitch and negative space to give a smoother, more detailed image across a smaller area. The color-separated pattern comes in two versions—one with a white background for printing, and one with a black background for screen viewing—and adds one color per page to clearly show which stitches to work against the ones that are already done.
Size: 80 x 110 stitches, approx. 4 x 6 inches on 18ct aida
