St Patrick's Day vintage postcard

Today’s free pattern is a vintage St Patrick’s Day postcard, turned into a cross stitch chart. Due to the loads of text it is a bit bigger than I expected it to be, but should be very easy to stitch.

The Kells cat cross stitch pattern

The Kells cat free cross stitch pattern

Today I’ve looked through loads of photos, but decided to make a pattern based on my own drawing (again: previously I made the Turtle Island, Maneki-neko and the jazz cat with bass). It will again be a cat, probably because somewhere inside of me is a crazy cat lady dying to get out.

This pattern, as well as the source picture, is heavily inspired by the art from the Book of Kells. The artwork and illumination of this medieval manuscript is fantastic! I strongly recommend to look it up on Google (or to visit Dublin’s Trinity College, where it is displayed).
