Pride Patch Patterns: November 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!

Delloromantic cross stitch patch pattern with the text dello in upper-case block-style lettering, striped in the colours of the white/green/black delloromantic pride flag, with a dark green background. A light grey triangle coves the d and part of the e. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in light 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.

A is for Aro Letters – 8 x 10 Block Frame / Single Letter

Two square cross stitch patterns with the letter "a" in lower-case and upper-case lettering. The lower-case design has a square border around it; the upper case has none. Both letters, and the border, are striped in the colours of the dark mint/light mint/white/light pink/dark pink abro flag, on a dark black-purple background. Both letters are outlined in violet.

The 8 x 10 “A is for Aro” icon/frame pattern fits 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).

The upper case “A” pattern fits a squarish-rectangle 20 stitches wide and 19 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 23 x 22 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Dello Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Delloromantic cross stitch patch pattern with the text dello in upper-case block-style lettering, striped in the colours of the white/green/black delloromantic pride flag, with a dark green background. A light grey triangle coves the d and part of the e. Pattern is set on a light grey grid. Letters are outlined, indicating backstitch, in light green.

The five-stripe “demi” 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).

Heart Patch Pattern – Arospike, Three Stripe

Cross stitch patch patterns for two heart patches. The left-hand patch, with fractional stitches to make an angled border, has three stripes and a pink spike in the colours of a newer light green/white/green arospike flag and is framed in a lighter green outline. The right-hand patch, in a pixel style with no fractional stitches, has three stripes and another pink spike in the colours of the older mint/grey/mint arospike flag and is framed in a darker green outline.

The twenty-block arospike heart patterns fit a rectangle 21 stitches wide and 20 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want an 24 x 23 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

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

Myr Patch Pattern – Fourteen Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text myr in block upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the light to dark green gradient/white/grey/black myrromantic flag. Letters are outlined in a darker mint green on a warm purple background.

The seven-stripe “myr” pattern fits a rectangle 38 stitches wide and 18 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 41 x 21 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Pride Patch Patterns – Caligo and Demi, Twelve Block, Upper Case

The four-stripe caligo and demi “pride” patterns fit a rectangle 51 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 54 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

The “dello” pattern can be merged with my five-stripe upper-case “aromantic” pattern to create “delloromantic”.

Previous “pride” patterns are available at last year’s pride month text tutorial!
