    Ready, Set, Stitch!



    Let Cristina of Hoops & Expectations guide you from the initial pattern download, to pattern transfer, to all necessary stitches, and how to finish your hoop with the videos below! Be sure to stock up with the Hoops & Expectations Skein Bundle, perfect for a grandé effect! Inspired by Kendra Scott models, the Girls In Pattern Jewels Series uses DMC’s  DAZZLING thread, Diamant Grandé, to get a 3-D effect on this chic approach to minimalistic line art. THICKER and BOLDER, this single strand thread is equivalent to 4 strands of Six-strand Embroidery Floss. In this video series, Cristina uses a  smaller, 7-inch hoop with fewer stitches so you can complete your project faster. Looking to hang a larger scaled version for your decor? Print the originals and complete a 12” hoop!
