A while back I did a fairly extensive Google search to find a cross-stitch or needlepoint pattern of the kanji for Aikido. Finding nothing usable, I decided to make my own; and now that it is complete I would like to offer it to the community at large in case anyone is interested in working it themselves. The pattern is based on a scanned image of a piece of O-sensei's calligraphy.
Anyone who wants to use this chart, please feel free! There are two files at the link below - a .JPG (the chart itself) and a rich-text file (the legend). The color numbers correspond to DMC floss; the finished piece on 18-count fabric measures around 13"x6".
Please let me know if you have any problems accessing the files.
The link is here.
