A physical booklet chart of the Modern Folk Embroidery's brand new design "Here Be Dragons"! 

Options to purchase floss from 1 over 2 (4 skeins total) or 2 over 2 (8 skeins total)

Roxy Floss Included: Gomez

Looking for linen? We recommend using Roxy Floss Co linen in the colour "Porcelain". A wide quarter will be plenty to stitch this chart (we do not recommend only purchasing an eighth as it will not be big enough for most counts). 

Prefer Aida? We now have Roxy Hand Dyed Aida available in "Porcelain" too! A wide quarter will be plenty when stitching on 18ct or 20ct, however, you will need to purchase a wide half to ensure you have enough yardage when stitching on 14ct or 16ct. 

This design measures 189 crosses wide, and 149 crosses high.

From Jacob:

The phrase “Here be Dragons” is long associated with medieval map makers. The belief was that beyond the known world, unknown and dangerous lands would be. This edge would be indicated by the Latin phrase “hic sunt dracones” (which means “here be dragons”).

Here Be Dragons can be stitched in a wide variety of ways: Only stitch the black square symbols (the positive space, photo 2), or choose to stitch only the background (the negative space, photo 3).

From there, you can choose to stitch the positive as a dark on a light background (the cover artwork) or a light on a dark background. The same goes for the negative space. You could even choose to stitch this design as a full cover piece!

There’s a total of 14081 crosses in the positive version. The negative version has just one cross less: 14080. 

On the floss:

Test a small sample if you intend to wash, esp darker colours and reds. The floss has been rinsed and set carefully and should be colourfast - but always better safe than sorry.

Carded and packed for you by hand in a smoke free, pet friendly workshop.

Applicable Canadian sales tax will be calculated at check out.

Happy Stitching!
