Great Spotted Woodpecker cross stitch pattern
Great Spotted Woodpecker cross stitch pattern

A counted cross stitch pattern of a Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dryobates major). The woodpecker is shown here hammering on a tree. A medium-sized bird, the woodpecker has spotted black and white feathers, and a red patch on the lower belly.

Found across Eurasia and parts of North Africa, this woodpecker has been spotted as far away as North America. Having a large population of birds, this species is of ‘least concern’ conservation-wise.

A von Wright brothers illustration from Svenska Fåglar Efter Naturen Och Pa Sten Ritade inspired this embroidery design.

We recommend this fun and challenging woodpecker embroidery design for advanced beginners. It uses quarter and three-quarter cross stitches to extend your needlework skills.

A perfect embroidery gift for a bird lover, or those creative crafters who love to dive into something new.
