Locomotive in Cross-stitch | McCall's No. 1683

Locomotive in Cross-stitch | McCall's No. 1683

Locomotive
Pattern 1683
McCall's Pattern Company
Original Copyright 1952

Patterns Included: 
Locomotive

Pattern includes 1 design, 12½" x 16" for cross-stitch picture, with crosses 7 to the inch.

Here is a cross-stitch picture with the feeling of a 19th century print. Interesting souvenir of the "iron horse" age for the walls of a modern home. The picture has been planned for twenty-two different colors in six-strand cottons. There is a great thrill awaiting you as you watch the locomotive come to life when putting in the colors. A chart for placing the colors is included in the pattern. Finished with a black frame and linen-covered mat, the picture measures 17" x 20". The picture is also attractive framed without a mat.

MATERIALS REQUIRED: Six-strand embroidery cotton should be used for the work. The design requires 22 colors, in the following amounts:

  • 1 skein each of lt. blue, lt. bluish gray. lt. gray, soft blue green, bright yellow, gold, lt. golden brown, med. golden brown, dark brown, bright red, cherry red, lt. wine and dk. Wine
  • 2 skeins each of dk. gray, dk. bluish gray, bright grass green, med. green, med. olive green, dk. green and taupe.
  • 3 skeins each of med. gray and black.

BACKGROUND MATERIAL: Smooth linen, medium weight linen-like cotton or unbleached muslin in white or cream. Use a piece of material 18" x 21".

Locomotive Chart Pattern

Pattern includes 1 design, 12½" x 16" for cross-stitch picture, with crosses 7 to the inch. A chart for placing the colors is also included in the pattern.

MATERIALS REQUIRED: Six-strand embroidery cotton should be used for the work. The design requires 22 colors, in the following amounts:

  • 1 skein each of lt. blue, lt. bluish gray. lt. gray, soft blue green, bright yellow, gold, lt. golden brown, med. golden brown, dark brown, bright red, cherry red, lt. wine and dk. Wine
  • 2 skeins each of dk. gray, dk. bluish gray, bright grass green, med. green, med. olive green, dk. green and taupe.
  • 3 skeins each of med. gray and black.

BACKGROUND MATERIAL: Smooth linen, medium weight linen-like cotton or unbleached muslin in white or cream. Use a piece of material 18" x 21". See framing directions below.

CROSS-STITCH: Follow the chart in the pattern for placing the colors and use six strands of cotton in the needle for the work. It is very important when working cross-stitch to have the crosses on the entire piece crossed in the same direction. Whether one starts at the left and works right, or whether one starts right and works toward the left is optional. Keep the stitches as even as possible. Be sure to make all crosses touch. To do this, put the needle in the same hole as used for the adjoining stitch.

TO BLOCK DESIGN: Cover a large bread board or drawing board with clean brown wrapping paper. Mark the size of linen rectangle, 18" x 21", on the brown paper. If the embroidered piece is badly soiled, it may be washed; if slightly soiled, dip in cleaning fluid. Place the wet piece (right side up) on the board, pull edges of linen to meet the guide lines drawn on the brown paper. Tack all edges of linen to the board, placing the thumb tacks close together. Allow the piece to remain on board until thoroughly dry.

BEFORE FRAMING: The embroidered piece should be stretched over a stiff piece of cardboard, cut to fit the frame. In stretching the material, be sure to keep the design perfectly straight. Pins driven through the material and into the edge of cardboard will be helpful in keeping the material straight. Paste edge of material down on the wrong side.

SUGGESTIONS FOR FRAMING: The picture finished with a covered mat is 17" x 20". The mat has 2" margins at top and sides and 2½" at the bottom and is covered with a rough textured linen, in a deep natural tone. The black frame is 1" wide. To frame the picture close, mount it on a cardboard 13½" x 17" (frame size) and use a frame with moulding from 1½" to 2" wide.
