This is gorgeous! I would love to make one, but that tiny cross stitch is too much for my old eyes anymore. I wonder if this can be used on plastic canvas? I can't think of why not, but if there is a reason, I'd like to know before I start. It would be larger, but I'd like to use it as a standalone decoration, so that wouldn't be a problem.

This is such a beautiful angel! I have seen it too late though. I'm definitely going to make this for next year but it's been a long time since I've done cross stitch so I'm going to have to start it in July! Thank goodness I see the post here from Chef Tiger (even if it was in 2009) to make the print out larger, I did find it a bit small. I am looking forward to this project.

What a beautiful angel. I am a slow stitcher so I won't be able to have this on this year's tree, but it's definitely in the to do pile for next year. I think she would make a great tree topper if you finished her that way. I did one that way several years ago and it was very cute. Kerrflorence- yes, you could easily do this on 14 count over one. It would be the same size as 28 count over 2 is.

Can this be done on 14 count instead of 28 and only working over 1 instead of two threads..? just asking...as I find it hard to work on 28 count

To make this print out larger in the Print window select the "Tile all pages" in the "Page scaling" option. There you can change the percentage to make the chart print across more pages making a larger chart. I used 175% to make it print across 6 pages... 150% goes across 4 pages and 200% goes across 8 pages. I hope you find this useful to print this pretty little angel to be able to stitch it up.

If you click on "pattern" in the materials list, you will get a full-sized chart. You can print this chart or you can also increase the size and print. Happy crafting!

It's too small to count and therefore cannot be used. Please fix it by putting it on a graph.

The graph is not enlarged enough to count each square to be able to cross stitch the angel. Can you fix it?
