If you're a Board Game Family, you've probably spent many hours playing Settlers of Catan. It's one of the seminal resource-management games on the market, and for good reason.

There's only one problem with this game, however, and it's the goddamn "wood for sheep" joke. Or maybe that's the only reason for this game to exist? Who knows. Someone is sure to make it every game, eliciting an eye roll from everyone at the table. This pattern pays homage to every board game aficionado's favorite childish sex joke.

This pattern is a little heavy on colors and contains some pretty fiddly backstitching, but no fractional stitches or french knots, at least! It's sized to fit a 5x7 frame on 16 or 18ct Aida. The mockup is shown on 18. On 16 it would go right to the edges on top and bottom, but would probably fit. Because of the white edges I wouldn't suggest white or light colored aida, unless you want to run a line of backstitch around the cards to lift them out from the background. I picture something in a hand-dyed variable blue to recall the ocean pieces surrounding the island of Catan.
