Pride Patch Patterns: January 2022

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!

Grey cross stitch patch pattern with the text grey in upper-case block lettering, striped in the colours of the green/grey/white/grey/green greyromantic flag, with a purple background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in dark purple.

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 Aego / C is for Caligo Letter Patch Pattern – Ten x Twelve Block

Two square cross stitch patterns with the letters "a" and "c" 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 aegoromantic (black/grey/white/green with reverse-striped triangle) and caligoromantic (dark to light green gradient with black/grey/white/green triangle) flags. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch.

The 10 x 12 “A is for Aego / C is for Caligo” 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).

Aro-Ace Patch Patterns – Twelve Block, Lower Case

Aroace cross stitch patch pattern with the text aroace in lower-case pixel-style lettering, striped in the colours of the black/blue/grey aroace pride flag, with a dark teal-blue background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in light blue-grey.
Aroace cross stitch patch pattern with the text aroace in lower-case pixel-style lettering, striped in the colours of the green/lime/white/pink/purple/navy aroace pride flag, with a very dark blue-green background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in lavender.

The three and six-stripe “aroace” patterns fit a rectangle 74 stitches wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 77 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Grey / Gray Patch Patterns – Ten Block, Upper Case

The five-stripe “grey” and “gray” patterns fit a rectangle 34 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 37 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Square Flag Patch Pattern – Apothi, Jump, Spike

Three square five-stripe 15 x 15 block cross stitch pride flag patterns, set on a grey grid. Flags from left to right: green/white/black/white/red with black cross apothiromantic flag; light green/grey/white/light grey/dark green with light and dark inwards-facing spikes arojump flag; and the grey/mint/grey with bright pink outwards-facing spikes arospike flag.

The 15 x 15 apothi, jump and spike square flag patterns fit a square 15 stitches wide and 15 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 18 x 18 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).
