Our Cross My Heart Blackwork Cross Stitch pattern is an intricate design of pink hearts with squares in a blue jewel thread.
Worked on 16 count white Aida, with two colors of DMC thread, this is a very economical design to make, because you’re only using a single thread of each color in the design, which measures just 70 x 70 stitches.
Our Cross My Heart Blackwork Cross Stitch pattern is very easy to follow from your computer, or you can print out the design if that’s easier for you. Many printers and scanners allow you to enlarge sections of designs so you could do that if it helps.
This is actually a really easy design to stitch because, as with all blackwork patterns, it’s created using small straight stitches so if you set aside a quiet time to concentrate without interruptions, you’ll be able to stitch it without any problem.
Blackwork designs, which are not necessarily black, can be stitched in any colors so if pink and blue don’t suit the decor of the room you will be making it for, change them for any other colors. This design would also look good on a wall if you create several from the same pattern.
You could also experiment with glitter threads like those from Gutermann. They give needlework a real sparkle, especially when artificial light falls on it.
