There are nine beautiful colors in our Love Doves Valentine’s cross stitch pattern.
As usual, we’ve stitched this design on 16 count Aida but if you want to make it a little larger than the 6.3×3.1in finished article you could make it on 14 count Aida or if you wanted to make it a little smaller, you could use 18 count Aida.
This Love Doves Valentine’s cross stitch design is really cute and as it only has nine colors it’s reasonably quick to make. The outlining is done in one thread of black DMC and it gives a super outline while being really easy to make.
If you like our Love Doves Valentine’s cross stitch design then take a look at all our other Valentine’s designs too. When you order one of our charts you get a color block page, which shows you which colors go where, and you also get a page with black and white symbols so that you can see where the colors change. It really is as easy as just following the chart.
We like the quality of DMC thread which is why we recommend it, but if you prefer you can use any other make of thread.
Many of our designs are made up into cards and you can get a selection of aperture cards from your local craft shop. All you need then is some double sided tape, scissors, and a steady hand to complete them.
Love Doves Valentine’s cross stitch design can be put into a frame
On the other hand Love Doves Valentine’s cross stitch would also look really nice in a white frame as a gift for a loved one, or to hang in their home. To add a touch of luxury you could use holographic or glitter thread – we like the quality of Gutermann’s, to bring out the detail in the doves’ beaks and feet.
Stitching is all about experimenting so go wild with your imagination!
