Stitch details for cross stitch alphabet 05

The free cross stitch alphabet, "Alphabet 05," is stitched on 18-count Aida over two threads. I used DMC floss:

  • 2 strands for backstitches
  • 2 strands for French knots


  • Line letters, script/italics

Characters Included:

  • Upper case letters
  • Numbers
  • Punctuation
  • (Use Alphabet 04 for lower case)


  • The upper case letters are 6 stitches high (not including the stylized stitch extending down at the lower tip of several letters (ex: A, H, K).
  • The majority of lower case letters in Alphabet 04 are 6 stitches high.


These letters have varying widths.
