Pride Patch Patterns: November 2021

Text reading "pride patch patterns" against a grey grid background. The words pride and pattern are written in a black handdrawn/script font and outlined with white. The word patch is drawn pixel-style like a cross stitch pattern and filled in with the green/light green/white/grey/black stripes of the aromantic flag.

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

Two square cross stitch patterns with the letter "d" in lower-case lettering. Both designs have a black or dark grey background, with the letter placed in the centre of the patch, surrounded by a striped frame. Both letters and the frame are striped in the colours of two demiromantic pride flags: white/green/light grey with black triangle; and black/green/white/grey with black rhombus. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch.

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.

A is for Arojump / Arospike Letter Patch Pattern – Eight x Ten Block

Two square cross stitch patterns with the letter "a" in lower-case lettering. Both designs have a black or dark grey background, with the letter placed in the centre of the patch, surrounded by a striped frame. Both letters and the frame are striped in the colours of the arojump (light green/grey/white/grey/green) and arospike (light green/white/green with pink spike) pride flags. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch.

The 8 x 10 “A is for Arojump and Arospike” icon/frame patterns fit a square 20 stitches wide and 20 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 23 x 23 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

D is for Demi Letter Patch Pattern – Eight x Ten Block

Two square cross stitch patterns with the letter "d" in lower-case lettering. Both designs have a black or dark grey background, with the letter placed in the centre of the patch, surrounded by a striped frame. Both letters and the frame are striped in the colours of two demiromantic pride flags: white/green/light grey with black triangle; and black/green/white/grey with black rhombus. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch.

The 8 x 10 “D is for Demi” icon/frame patterns fit a square 20 stitches wide and 20 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 23 x 23 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).
