Goldfinch and Thistle Hoop



Anyone who thinks English garden birds are brown and boring will definitely think again when they see this brightly coloured goldfinch.  A charm (just love this collective noun!) of goldfinches visit my garden every autumn and strip my holly tree of its berries – I do sometimes wish they would wait until after Christmas!

This project is suitable for confident beginners.

Stitches used are basket filling stitch, chain stitch, satin stitch, split stitch, straight stitch, turkey knot stitch. Instructions for working the more unfamiliar stitches are included in the pattern.

Shown mounted in 6” hoop.

Pattern includes full size templates, floss requirements and stitching instructions.  Please note this is a pattern to stitch your own hoop and not the finished item.  It is a digital pattern and you will not receive anything in the post.  Your pattern will be emailed to you and will also be available to download from your Bustle & Sew account when your order is complete.
