Pride Patch Patterns: March 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!

Three square four-stripe 16 x 16 block cross stitch pride flag patterns, set on a grey grid. Flags from left to right: horizontal black/grey/cyan/aqua/green/lime/white/black quoiro-quoix flux flag; ; horizontal green/light green/grey/light green/green arovague flag; horizontal grey/white/green/black demiromantic flag with black rhombus/diamond.

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.

Angled Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Angled cross stitch patch pattern with the text angled in upper-case block lettering, striped in the colours of the gold/yellow/lemon/ecru/brown angled aro-ace flag, with a tan background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in dark gold.

The five-stripe “angled” pattern fits a rectangle 50 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 53 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Frayro Patch Pattern – Twelve Block, Lower Case

Frayromantic cross stitch patch pattern with the text frayro in lower-case pixel-style lettering, striped in the colours of the blue/cyan/white/grey fray 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.

The four-stripe lower-case “frayro” pattern fits 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).

Recip Patch Pattern – Twelve Block, Lower Case

Recipromantic cross stitch patch pattern with the text recip in lower-case pixel-style lettering, striped in the colours of the red/pink/white/black recip pride flag, with a dark seafoam green background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in light seafoam green.

The four-stripe lower-case “recip” pattern fits a rectangle 56 stitches wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 59 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Square Flag Patch Pattern – Eight Stripe, Vague, Demi

Three square four-stripe 16 x 16 block cross stitch pride flag patterns, set on a grey grid. Flags from left to right: horizontal black/grey/cyan/aqua/green/lime/white/black quoiro-quoix flux flag; ; horizontal green/light green/grey/light green/green arovague flag; horizontal grey/white/green/black demiromantic flag with black rhombus/diamond.

The 16 x 16 eight-stripe, vague and demi square flag patterns fit a square 16 stitches wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 19 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Square Flag Patch Pattern – Aro-Ace, Spike, Greyromantic

Three square four-stripe 16 x 16 block cross stitch pride flag patterns, set on a grey grid. Flags from left to right: horizontal black/green/light green/white/light purple/purple/black aro-ace flag; horizontal grey/bright pink/mint/bright pink/grey arospike flag; pink/white/grey/white/mint greyromantic flag.

The 16 x 16 aro-ace, striped spike and greyromantic square flag patterns fit a square 16 stitches wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 19 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

The “angled” pattern can be paired with my five-stripe upper-case “aroace” pattern to create “angled aroace”.

The “recip” and “frayro” patterns use letters from my four-stripe pixel alphabet and can serve as a base for creating other three, four, six and twelve-stripe custom text patterns.
