Dancing Skeletons Cross Stitch Pattern

$ 3.33

Welcome to the world of the macabre! We are thrilled to introduce our latest blackwork cross stitch pattern, Danse of Macabre Cross Stitch Pattern, inspired by Michael Wolgemut’s The Dance of Death (1493). This blackwork pattern showcases a thrilling scene of three skeletons dancing wildly around a pitfire under the light of the full moon.

With its dark and moody design, this spooky cross stitch pattern is sure to be a standout piece in any cross stitch collection. The intricate details of the dancing skeletons bring an eerie sense of life to the scene, as if they are truly caught up in the frenzied dance of death. The use of blackwork adds to the spooky ambiance, creating a stark contrast against the moonlit sky.

This modern cross stitch pattern is a true testament to the witchy stitcher’s love of the gothic and macabre. We have included both a version with and without a background, so you can choose the one that best suits your personal style. The Zip file includes both versions for your convenience.

As you stitch, let yourself be transported back in time to the world of The Dance of Death, where the haunting verse of Henry Cazalis rings true: “Zig, zig, zig, Death in cadence, Striking with his heel a tomb, Death at midnight plays a dance-tune, Zig, zig, zig, on his violin.”

So, gather your skeins of black floss, light a candle, and let the spooky stitching commence! Whether you display your finished work in a gothic-inspired room or give it as a gift to a fellow lover of the macabre, Danse of Macabre is sure to be a standout piece for years to come.
