Vintage peony cross stitch pattern

The peony is one of the most beautiful flowers in the world ( I personally prefer it even over roses). It is not only one of the national symbols of China (which is widely known), but also the state flower of Indiana.

This cross stitch pattern is based on a vintage (probably Victorian) painting of a peony. I tried my best to conserve the vintage feeling of the source.

The pattern is relatively big and uses a lot of colors, so I would not recommend it for beginners. If you are a beginner take a look at other flower cross stitch patterns or for charts tagged “beginners“.

Stitch count: 150W x 200 H
Colors: 27

  3. Thank you for this charming pattern! Looks just like the peonies in my garden. And thank you for adding the latter legend file, it works fine for me. Can’t wait to start stitching!

  4. I love the peony pattern but I’m having trouble printing it so that the symbols show up. It keeps opening in Picasa, and then only prints half the pattern, but again the symbols are so small, they aren’t legible. Help?

    • Hi Ann,

      The pattern is probably too big and can not fit one page. Try printing it on several pages, or use the new link for PDF pattern on this page (the PDF file is already split into pages). I have also sent thу same PDF file to your e-mail 🙂

      Please let me know if you need anything else!
