Pride Patch Patterns: April 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!

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

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.

Apres Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Apres cross stitch patch pattern with the text apres in upper-case block lettering, striped in the colours of the pink/mint/lemon/black/grey apresromantic flag, with a pastel pink background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in pink-red.

The five-stripe “apres” 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).

Aro Arrow Patch Patterns – Demi

The demi aro arrow patterns fit a rectangle 63 stitches wide and 17 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 66 x 20 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Aroflux Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

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

The five-stripe “aroflux” pattern fits a rectangle 60 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 63 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Heart Patch Pattern – Three and Seven Stripe

Cross stitch patch patterns for two heart patches. The left-hand patch, in a pixel style with no fractional stitches, has three stripes in the colours of the genderqueer flag and is framed in a darker purple outline. The right-hand patch, with fractional stitches to make an angled border, has seven stripes in the colours of the nebularomantic flag and is framed in a cyan outline.

The twenty-one block heart patterns fit a rectangle 21 stitches wide and 21 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 24 x 24 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Because these patches are more easily sewn upside down, the patterns are oriented to match.

The “aroflux” pattern can be merged with my five-stripe upper-case “aroace” pattern to create “aroaceflux” (or “aceflux”).
