Circular Monograms comes with a 59-page hand embroidery pattern in high-quality PDF format, with four complete alphabets of modern, circular monograms. The individual monograms measure between 3 and 4 inches (7.5 and 10cm). The illustrated instructions tell you which embroidery stitch, DMC thread color and how many strands of thread to use, as well as any additional embroidery instructions. This pattern does not include stitch instructions. You’ll find instructions for all the embroidery stitches used in this pattern (and more) in 120 Embroidery Stitches. Alternatively, find instructional pics and links to photo and video how-tos on my Stitches board on Pinterest.
