Pride Patch Patterns: May 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!

A cross stitch pattern for two different ace of spades patches on a grey grid background. The left-hand patch has three stripes and a black triangle covering the left side of the spade, in the colours of the white/blue/light grey triangle demi aro-ace flag. The right-hand patch has four stripes and a black rhombus in the centre, in the colours of the grey/white/blue/black diamond flag. Both designs are outlined in light blue.

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.

Ace of Spades Patch Pattern – Demi

A cross stitch pattern for two different ace of spades patches on a grey grid background. The left-hand patch has three stripes and a black triangle covering the left side of the spade, in the colours of the white/blue/light grey triangle demi aro-ace flag. The right-hand patch has four stripes and a black rhombus in the centre, in the colours of the grey/white/blue/black diamond flag. Both designs are outlined in light blue.

The demi aro-ace / ace of spades patterns fit a rectangle 17 stitches wide and 20 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 20 x 23 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Arohaze Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Arohaze cross stitch patch pattern with the text arohaze in upper-case block lettering, striped in the colours of the green/light green/white/pastel blue/blue arohaze/aromush flag, with a dark navy background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in darker green.

The five-stripe “arohaze” pattern fits a rectangle 58 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 61 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Aro and Ace Patch Patterns – Twelve Block, Lower Case

The four-stripe lower-case “aro” and “ace” patterns fit a rectangle 38 blocks wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 41 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Moon Patch Pattern – Four and Five Stripe

Cross stitch patch patterns, in a pixellated style, for two crescent moon patches. The left-hand patch has four stripes in the colours of the oriented aro-ace flag (navy/blue-grey/white/aqua) and is framed in a darker teal outline. The right-hand patch has five stripes in the colours of the abro flag (mint-green/light mint-green/white/light pink/pink) and is framed in a dark pinkish-maroon outline.

The twenty-block crescent moon patterns fit a rectangle 16 stitches wide and 20 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 19 x 23 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Idemro Patch Pattern – Twelve Block, Lower Case

Idemromantic cross stitch patch pattern with the text idemro in lower-case pixel-style lettering, striped in the colours of the grey/mint/white/peach idemromantic pride flag, with a dark green background. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in light peach.

The four-stripe lower-case “idemro” pattern fits a rectangle 72 stitches wide and 16 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 75 x 19 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

The “idemro”, “aro” and “ace” 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.
