Fractal Counted Cross Stitch Patterns are variations of Fractal Art or Algorithmic Art. Some cross stitch afficianados also call it psychedelic cross stitch patterns. They are genres of Computer Art and Digital Art and are considered part of New Media Art. I am not sure, but would like to think that Fractal Art had cross stitch in mind when this genre was created. Regardless, these Fractal images have just added a whole new dimension to cross stitch designs and we will see charts, kits and digital e-pattern downloads for years to come. Artful Designs and Fractal Cross Stitch Patterns are a must add to any cross stitcher's cross stitch projects.
