Pride Patch Patterns: September 2021

Six digitally-created versions of cross stitch pride patches, arranged in two rows of three, against a background of a textured partially-translucent aromantic pride flag. Text between the two rows reads Aro Pride Patches in black type. Patches include a rectangular patch in aroflux zigzag stripes, an idemromantic heart, an aro flag text patch reading "aro", a square in quoiromantic stripes, an arrow design in allo-aro colours and a second arrow in nebularomantic colours.

As I post weekly pride patch patterns on Patreon, here’s a monthly round-up for non-subscribers!

Cross stitch pattern with the text electio in block upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the purple/pink/lime/white/black electio aroace flag, on a dark violet background.

Folks who need help with materials, stitching, finishing or attaching patches should check out my tutorial master page.

Previous patterns are available at my pattern gallery.

Notes on Pattern Structure

Full coloured blocks indicate a full cross stitch. Letter outlines indicate backstitch.

Blocks divided on the diagonal by a line of backstitch, each half a different colour, indicate quarter stitches. Please see my first text tutorial and my pride text tutorial for more information on backstitching outlines and placing quarter/fractional stitches.

Space for edging your patch is not shown in the patterns below. You’ll need to allow additional blocks for this when cutting your swatch, depending on how narrow or thick you like your edges.

Aro Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text aro in upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the dark green/light green/white/grey/black aromantic flag. Letters are outlined in dark green against a maroon background.

The five-stripe “aro” pattern fits a rectangle 32 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 35 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Aro-Ace Patch Patterns – Ten Block, Lower Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text aroace in pixel-style lower-case lettering, striped in the colours of the orange/yellow/white/blue/navy aroace flag, on a light blue-grey background.
Cross stitch pattern with the text acearo in pixel-style lower-case lettering, striped in the colours of the orange/yellow/white/blue/navy aroace flag, on a light blue-grey background.

The five-stripe “aroace” and “acearo” patterns fit a rectangle 61 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 64 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Aro-Ace Patch Patterns – Ten Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text aroace in pixel-style upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the purple/blue/light green/white/grey aroace flag, on a teal-blue background.
Cross stitch pattern with the text acearo in pixel-style upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the purple/blue/light green/white/grey aroace flag, on a teal-blue background.

The five-stripe “aroace” and “acearo” patterns fit a rectangle 62 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 65 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Electio Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text electio in block upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the purple/pink/lime/white/black electio aroace flag, on a dark violet background.

The five-stripe “electio” pattern fits a rectangle 54 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 57 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Thelo Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text thelo in block upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the lilac/white/yellow/green/navy thelo aroace flag, on a light green-grey background.

The five-stripe “electio” pattern fits a rectangle 42 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 45 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

The pixel-style “aro” and “aroace” patterns use my five-stripe aro alphabet and can serve as a base for making your own custom five-stripe text patterns. They can also be added to my bisexual, gay, lesbian, queer and trans patterns!

My ten block “aroace” pattern can be combined with both electio and thelo patterns.
