Scott and I were recently talking about Memorial Day and Anzac Day and how both of our home countries commemorate our fallen soldiers. “Lest We Forget” is frequently used in Kiwi observances and I thought it was perfect for Memorial Day, as well. This easy to stitch Lest We Forget Cross Stitch Pattern is a great display piece and gift and you can choose whether or not to include the words.
The pattern calls for all cross stitch, but if you want to stitch the stripes like I did, use three stripes per square of Aida–one in each hole and one in the middle.
I stitched this on 14 count Aida in Platinum from Charles Craft.
