Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm's fairy tale : The Wolf and the seven little Kids

Pattern to embroider in cross stitch or in petit point.

Each of the patterns in this series dedicated to Grimm's fairy tales. On one side a version of the motif in colour and on the other side, the same motif in unicolour. The instruction sheet contains the paragraph that it illustrates in the tale.

Our patterns are all printed on large format paper (29,7 x 42) and are very easy to follow.

Size of this motif: 90 x 90 points. When using 12 count embroidery linen and sewing over 2 threads, the finished piece will measure 15cm each side. Sewing over 2 threads using 16 count linen, your piece will measure 11.3cm each side. Sewing over 5.5 count Aida, your piece will measure 16.5cm each side. Don’t forget to leave a border around your embroidery.

For the multicolour version, 12 colours of thread are needed. Our recommendations for the colours with our Retors du Nord thread: 2317, 2223, 2469, 2041, 2005, 2037, 2780, 2003, 2221, 2567, 2535 and 2043.

…it was not long before some one came
knocking at the house-door,
and crying out:
"Open the door,
my dear children, your mother is come back,
and has brought each of you something."
But the little kids knew it was the wolf by the hoarse voice.
"We will not open the door," cried they;
"you are not our mother,
she has a delicate and sweet voice,
and your voice is hoarse;
you must be the wolf."
Then off went the wolf to a shop
and bought a big lump of chalk,
and ate it up to make his voice soft.
And then he came back, knocked at the house-door,
and cried: "Open the door, my dear children,
your mother is here,
and has brought each of you something."
But the wolf had put up his black paws against the window,
and the kids seeing this,
cried out,
"We will not open the door;
our mother has no black paws like you;
you must be the wolf." The wolf then ran to a baker.
"Baker," said he,
"I am hurt in the foot;
pray spread some dough over the place."
And when the baker had plastered his feet,
he ran to the miller. "Miller," said he,
"strew me some white meal over my paws."
But the miller refused,
thinking the wolf must be meaning harm to some one.
"If you don't do it," cried the wolf, "I'll eat you up!"
And the miller was afraid and did as he was told.
And that just shows what men are.
And now came the rogue the third time to the door and knocked.
"Open, children!" cried he.
"Your dear mother has come home,
and brought you each something from the wood." -
"First show us your paws," said the kids,
"so that we may know if you are really our mother or not."
And he put up his paws against the window,
and when they saw that they were white,
all seemed right, and they opened the door.
And when he was inside they saw it was the wolf,
and they were terrified and tried to hide themselves.
One ran under the table, the second got into the bed,
the third into the oven,
the fourth in the kitchen, the fifth in the cupboard,
the sixth under the sink, the seventh in the clock-case.
But the wolf found them all, and gave them short shrift;
one after the other he swallowed down, all but the youngest,
who was hid in the clock-case...
