Welcome to the witchy world of the Totentanz! Let us introduce you to our latest creation, the Danse of Macabre cross stitch pattern. Inspired by Michael Wolgemut’s famous woodcut print ” Danse of Macabre – The Dance of Death” (1493), this dancing skeletons cross stitch pattern brings to life the iconic dancing skeletons from the gothic era. With two versions to choose from of this modern cross stitch pattern, one with a background and one without, you can create the perfect piece to match your gothic style.

Stitch the haunting melody of death with our dance of death cross stitch pattern, as you bring to life the words of Henry Cazalis: “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.” Watch as the white skeletons dance and leap through the darkness, creating an eerie and enchanting display.

In this goth cross-stitch pattern, you will see dancing skeletons, also known as Totentanz, moving to the beat of Death’s violin. The dark winter wind blows and the night is dark, but the white skeletons pass through the gloom, running and leaping in their shrouds. Each skeleton is frisking, and the bones of the dancers are heard to crack, but just as suddenly, they quit the round and push forward, flying as the cock crows.

Whether you’re a seasoned witchy stitcher or just starting out, we are confident that you will enjoy stitching this dance of death cross stitch chart. We hope that you will join us on this journey through the darkness, bringing this gothic masterpiece to life stitch by stitch.
