Night Vale Cross Stitch, Finally!

Stitched Fancy Dog Park

Hello Stitchers! I have some special charts for you today. I have been working on these Welcome to Night Vale cross stitch charts on and off for six months, and I have been dieing to share them. It was not till the other day that I realized it had been four months since I made a blog post! It has been a long and crazy four months: I re-injured my shoulder (don’t wrestle drunk bike messengers kids), my roommate is still pretty sick but is at the Mayo Clinic right now getting the “Dr. House” work up , and I got to scratch “Have dog with mohawk” scratched off my bucket list.
(Sir Murphy Loves it)

Thankfully things are starting to calm a bit and I can get back to charting nerdy things on a more frequent basis.

I have quite a few Night Vale charts for you today, and tried to make patterns for all level of stitcher. To save space I had to shrink some of the images, so hopefully you get a good idea of how they might look. I also added some technique info and “just marks” versions of most patterns for those of you who like to adjust colors, or just don’t like having the colors filled in. Most patterns are also multi-paged, to make them easier to ready without having to enlarge them from a single PDF page.

As always please contact me with any questions, comments, offerings of chocolate, broken links, pattern issues, pictures of puppies, or pics of your creations (my favorite).

Enjoy!

NIGHTVALEKN DMC PALLET

On many of the patterns I have the script “empty”, or as “background”. I have a very good reason for this, so I made up this sample of several ways to tackle lettering. You can use these techniques to personalize my patterns or to help you tackle letters surrounded by stitching on any patterns you create.

Back stitch samples

My favorite way for dealing with script on a solid stitched background is #1 and #7, back stitching around the “empty” background fabric.

I find #1 to be cleaner and easier to read than just stitching in the number flat, like #5, #10, and #(1)3.

#1 and #7 give greater depth, texture, and clarity than no back stitch on an empty background like in #(1)1 or the muddyness of cross and back stitching in the same color like #3, #8, and #1(3).

I also find that having back stitching in a color contrasting neighboring stitches like #1,#4,#6,#7,#9, or#(1)2, make the symbols much easier to read than having similar colors like #2,#8, or #11.

If you are using a large fabric or grid to work on, like monks cloth, the back stitching might not have as great a visual impact on any kind of script or numerals you might use, so these samples might not hold as much weight for you. As always, make some samples first to see if your thread count or back stitching technique need adjusting.

I only have colorwork crochet/knit charts for Night Vale. I’m not really aware of many 3D crochet patterns. I know there are a few floating around on Pintrest.
