This design is a collage of different motifs from Palestine. The largest is the star of Bethlehem and it is a symbol of generosity.

Design is 221 x 222 stitches. On 14-count aida the finished piece is approximately 15.8 in/40 cm square.

The 16-page digital pattern for this bundle comes with three styles of charts but does not come with written instructions so it’s best for those with some previous cross-stitch experience.
