ChrisMoose Berry

This fellow is joined by some of his woodland pals in a forest clearing for a bit of holiday celebration. I’ve stitched the moose and his friends with Simply Wool thread on the linen berry, which is worked on Petit Point Belfast linen for a snowy background. The silk berry sports a starry sky in the background.
Not just for Christmas - this berry will fit into your décor all winter long!

NOTE: Silk and linen berry chartpaks have been sold separately for some time, and copies are likely still available from numerous retailers. However, due to the lack of silk gauze available for the foreseeable future, ChrisMoose Berry will be sold as a “partner” chartpak. This new format will include instructions and charts for both berries - but no silk gauze.

A “Stitch Dot” magnet from Zappy Dots is available.
