The Rose Romance free needlepoint pattern was designed to introduce you to the Long Stitch, an easy needlepoint stitch that produces results quickly.
The pattern produces an oblong, rather than a square. The repeating motif makes it easy to stitch an even larger version with dozens of roses.
Long Stitch is often worked on Penelope Canvas due to the 2-thread canvas being better able to support an individual stitch crossing just one thread group on the canvas.However, this design can be worked on Mono Canvas as well, because all stitches cross at least 2 threads of canvas.
