Ankh on Rainbow Background

This version is cross stitch on 20 grid aida, 13 cm (5 1/8 inch) height, hemmed, not including hanger.

I've done three of these ankhs, two in cross stitch and one in needlepoint. After doing them in cross stitch, I was curious as to how the design would change, as color blending must be done differently for needlepoint (alternating color diagonal rows, resulting in a "checkerboard").

This version is needlepoint on 18 grid aida, as scanned, will be 14.5 cm (5 3/4 inch) hemmed.

Alternating color diagonal rows, resulting in a "checkerboard".

The pattern pdf gives instructions for both needlepoint and cross stitch.
