Pride Patch Patterns: December 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!

Cross stitch pattern with the text aroace in pixel-style lower-case lettering. The text is divided into two words - aro and ace - with each word striped in the colours of the demiromantic (white/green/grey with black triangle) and demisexual (white/purple/grey with black triangle) flags on a very dark grey background. Pattern is set on a grey grid.

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.

Demi Aro-Ace Patch Pattern – Ten Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text aroace in pixel-style lower-case lettering. The text is divided into two words - aro and ace - with each word striped in the colours of the demiromantic (white/green/grey with black triangle) and demisexual (white/purple/grey with black triangle) flags on a very dark grey background. Pattern is set on a grey grid.

The five-stripe demi “aroace” pattern fits a rectangle 61 stitches wide and 14 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 64 x 17 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

Heart Patch Pattern – Arojump, Three and Five Stripe

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

The twenty-block arojump 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.

Non-SAM Aro Patch Pattern – Fourteen Block, Upper Case

Cross stitch pattern with the text non sam aro in block upper-case lettering, striped in the colours of the dark cyan/cyan/white/blue/white/light green/green non sam aro flag. Letters are outlined in a light blue on a dark purple background.

The seven-stripe “non sam aro” pattern fits a rectangle 110 stitches wide and 18 stitches high. Assuming a three stitch border, as for my other patches, this means you’ll want a 113 x 21 block swatch plus any excess (if used unmodified).

This pattern is best stitched on 18-count aida. For more tips on stitching longer-word patches, please see my Pride Month Patch Pattern post.

Square Flag Patch Patterns – Three Stripe, Romo, Aroflex

Three square three, five or seven-stripe 15 x 15 block cross stitch pride flag patterns, set on a grey grid. Flags from left to right: the lime/yellow/light grey lithromantic flag, the green/light green/pink/white/pink/light grey/black romo aro flag and the green/light grey/black/light grey/light green with two white triangles aroflex flag.

The 15 x 15 three-stripe, romo aro and aroflex 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).

The combined demi “aroace” pattern is based on this image series which can be recreated with many five-stripe a-spectrum flags (a la flux, lith, grey, recip or abro) using my ten block pixel “aroace” pattern.
