1/2 cross stitch and read a 1/4 pattern

The pattern is of the lower left 1/4 of the rug-do not repeat the top row or the far right row-these are marked on the pattern.

The direction of the 1/2 cross stitch should always be in the direction of the points in the pattern. The lower left and upper right 1/4 stitch tops will be to the NW, the upper left and lower right 1/4 stitch tops will be to the NE.

My parents bought a Navajo rug in New Mexico at the hogan of the woman who weaved it. I was quite small then but remember when this happened. I loved that rug so much, I decided to create a pattern from it and share it with others so that you too, can delight in the creation and appreciation of a truly original design.
