It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without hearts and this cross stitch design Love Hearts has them aplenty.
Stitch the hearts and then finish off with the easy blackwork which brings the design to life. We’ve used classic red and pink but you could use any colour you like. Make the finished article into either a card for your loved one, or a wall hanging.
This 16 count Aida pattern includes PDF featuring symbol and colour block charts.
If you love cross stitch and Blackwork then this is perfect for Valentine’s Day and would make a wonderful cross stitch card gift. You can either use double sided tape to fix the finished design to a plain card or you can get an aperture card from your local craft shop.
If you enjoy blackwork, and it’s really simple to do but looks very intricate and effective, then have a look at our other designs which include the Stars Cross Stitch Pattern, and Nothing But Flowers, Trio Cube, Blackwork The Cube, Techweb and Valentine Hearts.
As you can see, a touch of colour or random dyed thread makes these designs really pop.
