There are 16 bright colors in our Garden Dog cross stitch pattern which we think you’ll enjoy stitching.
We’ve chosen 16 count white Aida for the Garden Dog cross stitch pattern and it should be easy to stitch as there are some large sections of single color – like brown for the dog and green for the grass. The design measures 60 x 60 stitches.
Our dog doesn’t have a name, but if you have a friend or loved one with a favorite pet, you could stitch the pet’s name on the left hand side above the gate to really personalise the card or gift.
Our happy Garden Dog is ready for action with his blue and yellow ball. He’s waiting patiently for a friend to throw it for him. In the meantime, he’s sitting underneath a lovely tree with shady branches. The slightly darker hues in the tree and lawn add to the interest in the stitching.
As usual, our Garden Dog cross stitch pattern uses two strands of DMC thread, with the outlining being done in one strand of black. However, as usual, if you have other colors you want to use then feel free to change them.
When you order our Garden Dog cross stitch pattern you’ll be able to get to work straight away because you’ll be downloading the charts from the internet. To help you, one chart is color and the other has black and white symbols so that you can easily see which color goes where.
Give your Garden Dog cross stitch pattern a personal touch
If you prefer to use a colored Aida you could choose a pale blue so that the sky is blue, that would be a nice personal touch.
On the other hand, if you prefer cats, take a look at some of our cat cross stitch designs, you’re sure to find something there that you like.
