Most continents have big cats and many of them have spots. This project is a generic representation of a spotted big cat, closely resembling a snow leopard, not quite an African leopard and not quite a cheetah. I designed it so that wherever you are in the world, you will be able to stitch a representation of the big cat on your continent. The fur of the leopard is worked randomly in a single strand using a variety of freestyle stitches, changing colours as you work the spots. This provides wonderful texture and keeps you interested as you work through the face.
