Elliot Clan Tartan
The Elliot tartan was first recorded in the book, ”Clans Originaux” in 1880, and later in the Johnston’s “The Tartans of the Clans and Septs of Scotland”, in 1906. The coloring is unique among tartans, being described as maroon and blue. In 1993, Andrew Elliot, of Elliot Fine Fabrics Weavers of Selkirk, produced an evening version of the Elliot tartan, with the blue changed to midnight blue.
About Your Cross Stitch Towel/Bookmark
The entire pattern is stitched in full cross stitch stitches, using two strands of floss on 14-count or 16-count Aida canvas imbedded within the towel or bookmark. There are no half- or quarter-stitches and no backstitching. The pattern included in the download measures 3”x14”. This ensures that the pattern will be of sufficient size for the majority of the cross stitch towels and bookmarks. Depending on the size of the towel or bookmark, you may not have room to stitch the entire pattern. Always start at the center of the pattern and work out to the edges.
