Unassigned Variable: the sewing pattern

You've probably found this page because you've followed a link from Alice's Wonderland blog, or from my blog.

Here, for your entertainment, are pictures and variations on the Horde 'unassigned variable' cross-stitch / needlepoint pattern. If anyone actually makes this, please send a pic so I can show your work here!

The Design

The horde logo on a shield with the slogan Finger Ingested Crack The horde logo on a shield with the slogan Finger Ingested Crack and the guild name unassigned variable

The Patterns

From MicroRevolt's KnitPro: this produces simple-looking patterns, but doesn't reduce the number of colours in the image.

From Pic2Point: more complex-looking patterns, but reduces the colours in the image, gives you a chart of yarns on the front, and makes the pattern easier to follow
