This counted cross stitch pattern was inspired by the poem from JRR Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings”. Gandalf leaves this in a letter for the hobbits – it’s meant to be about Aragorn, but its meaning can be interpreted many different ways.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
When completed on 14 count cloth, this design fits nicely into a 6” x 4” frame.
That pattern includes a suggested DMC thread list, although feel free to substitute these for your desired effect!
