This sparkling cross-stitch design is created by using DMC floss for the basic green shamrock, highlighted by stitches of Kreinik Very Fine (#4) Braid making unique glistening veins and edges, enhanced by a metallic lace-look border to make it look extravagant. Mill Hill beads add a finishing touch. It can be for St. Patrick’s Day, for the Irish, to show pride in ones heritage, or for anytime.
