Elements biscornu patterns by Magical525 Elements biscornu patterns by Magical525
This is the basic pattern for all the biscornu

I have only included the fire biscornu main pattern as I used the same pattern for all of the elements - just with different colours. The different corner backstitch patterns I have added to the side with the colours of the biscornu so you can see what the colour placement is and how to make the back stitch area. While playing around with idea's I also came up with a couple of more possible corner bits and to give you more options I have included them - these are the ones in brown. Basically once you have done the central area you can pick any of the corners to do for your biscornu :)

Stats:
Size of embroidery before being sewn: 2 1/4" / 5,75 cm square
Size of each completed biscornu 1 1/2" / 4 cm square
Fabric: 18 ct Aida

The water side:
Colours used: 712 (cream), 800 (light blue), 798 (medium blue) and 820 (darkest blue)

The fire side:
Colours used: white, 973 (yellow), 947 (orange) and 666 (red)
Total number of cross stitches: 644
Total number of backstitches: 308

I used DMC 154 (purple) to join the sides together to make the fire and water biscornu

The Air side:

Lovely! I bet this would work well as a seed bead pattern too! I may have to try it in my new bead loom.

It may indeed work for this as it's a fairly simple pattern :)

I love sharing where possible :) Don't forget the fire and water one is already packed and ready to go to you, so some control will be required ;)
