4 7/8”-5 5/8” w x 4 3/4”-5 1/4” h - 58-80 stitches w by 71-73 stitches h

Four cross-stitch designs - “Log Lifters (Indian Elephants)”, “Graceful As A Swan”, “Playing Chicken” and
“Later Gator” - stitched with pearl cotton (embroidery floss may be used with a laying tool) are each ‘afghan
square’ designs showing pairs of animals traveling through grass, water and trees to the ark to make a
unique “Two by Two They Came” afghan.  

Instructions for making a pillow to go with the afghan are included.  The 4 graphs each fit a whole page for
easy reading.  Glass beads are used for the eyes, but if the afghan is intended for someone under 3 years
of age, French knots should be used instead of the beads.

The animal names, all whole stitches, are stitched in very dark garnet.  Colors may be changed.
