The Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh cross stitch design

The Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh cross stitch design


This is a Cross stitch design of The Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh from Monty Python and the Holy grail.
This Film is definately one of the films that everyone must see. Its always in the top of best film ever lists. It is certainly one of my favourites too!

This design is big enough for a decent sized cushion. Perhaps surround the aida with some dark fabric to go with the blacks, greens and browns in the design.

The Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrrggghhh and Monty Python and the Holy grail is made by Python pictures.

Big update!


Hello everyone,
Looks like this post missed out on my giant update a while ago where I added thread numbers to everything I could on this blog. So a big thank you to my anonymous commenter for bringing this to my attention.
I've left the older version up in case anyone is working on it. However when I went to grab the thread numbers from the original file I found that I had accidentally used a couple of similar shades when one would do. So I cut out instances of colours which were too similar but apart from that the design is mostly the same.
I also made up a symbol version of the design for ease of following the design. Please scroll down below and take a peek. I havn't done many symbol charts so if you have any feedback for me please feel free to let me know. :)

    1. Hi there. I've done a big update on this post to add thread numbers and a symbol chart. Looks like I forgot to add the numbers originally so thank you for bringing it to my attention. :) I hope you enjoy this pattern.
