Patch Patterns: Fourteen Block Text and Letters

Six digitally-created versions of cross stitch pride patches, arranged in two rows of three, against a background of a textured partially-translucent aromantic pride flag. Text between the two rows reads Aro Pride Patches in black type. Patches include a rectangular patch in aroflux zigzag stripes, an idemromantic heart, an aro flag text patch reading "aro", a square in quoiromantic stripes, an arrow design in allo-aro colours and a second arrow in nebularomantic colours.

Here you’ll find all my fourteen block text and letter patch patterns! For more information on how to sew them, please see my patch pattern tutorial page and my text patch miniseries.

Fourteen block patterns best suit flags with seven or fourteen horizontal stripes, or any combination of thicker and thinner stripes that fit a fourteen-stripe base.

Header links will take you to posts demonstrating sewn examples (if available). Patterns are listed in alphabetical order by identity, followed by multi-identity and alphabet patterns. This page also includes all bonus and non-aromantic patterns.

Notes on Pattern Structure

Full coloured blocks indicate a full cross stitch. Letter outlines indicate backstitch.

Blocks divided on the diagonal, each half a different colour, indicate quarter stitches. Please see my first text tutorial and my pride month pride patch 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.

Please see my tutorial master page for information on stitching.
