Robin cross stitch pattern

by The Hawthorn Tree

Counted cross stitch pattern of a robin.

Voted Britain's favourite bird in 2015, the robin can be seen all over the country throughout the year. Well-known for their tameness, they have been beloved of gardeners for many generations.

Victorian postmen were nicknamed "redbreasts" because of the waistcoats htey wore, so the little robin redbreast started to appear on Christmas cards delivering festive messages. Robins are still a very popular motif for Christmas cards and decorations.
