Twisted Band Sampler

It's been a while since I did a band sampler, and this time I wanted to do something a little different, so I added a twist!! Designing on a diagonal is challenging but so much fun!
This design is a combination of cross stitch and many specialty stitches, with stitch diagrams and instructions provided for all stitches.

Floss estimates are for 32 count fabric using one strand of thread for stitching over two. If using DMC, you might need to bump that to two strands – it doesn't cover quite as well. If you do use two strands, you may need a second skein of the greens and golds.
