This is the X-Men (Colossus, Gambit, Rogue, Storm, Beast, Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Psylocke, Iceman, and Archangel); the pattern is from weelittlestitches at Etsy. My sister asked me to do this for one of her friends; she provided the materials and the pattern. It is on platinum aida (14-count). I mostly followed the pattern’s colors; I did use blending filament (Kreinik 032, pearl) on Iceman and on Storm’s hair. This was the first time I’ve used blending filament and it was not as bad to work with as I thought it would be. On the other hand, the DMC Light Effects thread used in Colossus was obnoxious to work with.
