I Need A Barbed Wire Pattern

by ElleMay14 » Thu Dec 22, 2011 6:05 am

Title says it all. :)

I'm looking for a barbed wire pattern for a border.
Either cross stitched or backstitched will be fine thanks.

I've done a very simple backstitched barbed wire design here - bizarely, I was already working on it as a posible border for a subversive sampler - LOL!

I've charted it in black and red so you can see the stitches more easily, but I would suggest a steel grey in two strands for the wire, and perhaps mixing a strand of that with a rusty colour for the spiky bits if you were to stitch it.

Wow!!! That so blew my mind! Way better than what I was thinking!
Thats strangely weird/cool that you were already working it too! :)
Thanks soo very much Kell!

Btw, My name is Elle and I am new to this site. Could I get a blank template like that to work my own patterns? I picked up cross stitching / embroidery / knitting here recently and noticed that they all use the same template, even though they are totally different.
Anyway, just thought I'd ask. Thanks again for the quick reply and pattern, really didn't expect any replies that soon, much less such an awesome pattern!

You can get graph paper on line free if you have a printer if not go and get a A4 graph pad and go from there
