About the cross stitch dogs

These cross stitch dogs were originally published in Cross Stitch Crazy issue 204 as part of the Crazy For… feature. The designs use whole and fractional cross stitch in two strands, backstitch in one strand and French knots in one strands of thread. You can stitch them on aida or on even weave, which will help you work the factional stitches. The cross stitch dogs download is an A4 PDF with 10 cross stitch dogs including the Jack Russell cross stitch pattern you can see in our main image, as well as an accompanying key to help you stitch the cross stitch dogs.
