DMC Color Spiral

Found on Flickr

DMC spiral 01

This colorful spiral was created by Flickr user Meredith - it is made of 6 cross-stitches apiece of every single DMC stranded floss color! Yowzers!

Nevermind the serious commitment it must've taken to stick with it and collect up all those threads, I'm really struck by how the colors look laid out this way, in numerical order. Those of you with a DMC color book will be used to seeing them in a different layout. I like how Meredith's seems more random, but reveals little sections with their own patterns as you stare into it.

Besides, what a cool sampler to have handy, ready to show you any color you might be considering for your projects! Visit Meredith at her blog Hardcore StitchCorps to find out more about her stitching.

Julie is a knitter and stitcher, born in the US but now living in the UK. She loves vintage embroidery books and bad slasher movies. With her mum, Julie designs embroidery patterns inspired by literature under the name Little Dorrit & Co.



  1. I want one!! Pretty sure I don't have anywhere near ALL the colours though!

  2. I saw this on flickr. It is adorable.
