Daniel Tiger is a main character from engaging animated series for children Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. This pattern requires some experience due to presence of backstitches and blended colors. The technique of blending or mixing threads is explained below.
To realize Daniel’s cardigan I’ve used blended colors (you’ll need to mix DMC-816 with DMC-606 and DMC-321 with DMC-606). This way it looks like “knitted”. I think, the next time I should experiment with fur as well. But this will be the next time :).
How to blend colors? It’s quite easy! To embroider a cross-stitch we usually use two strands of the same color. And who says that it’s forbidden to take two different colors of the same length, put them together, thread the needle and continue stitching as if it is one-colored floss in two strands.
