Abduction of Psyche Cross Stitch Pattern

$7.99 USD

Cross Stitch Romantic Mythology

If you love Greek mythology, and are keen to tackle a great big project, why not stitch the enraptured lovers Cupid and Psyche on their ascension to the heavenly realms?



The Abduction of Psyche Cross Stitch Pattern is a replica of the famous 1895 painting L’enlèvement de Psyché by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. This is a simply fantastic project, but be warned, it’s one of the hardest projects in our collection. Are you up for the challenge?

The Project

This stunning project is a full coverage cross stitch and measures 58.1cm x 104.1cm (320 x 574 grid area) when stitched on 14-count Aida cloth. You’ll need 134 different DMC colours and be completing 183,680 cross stitches.

The finished piece is incredibly beautiful as there is so much depth and detail BUT there is a huge amount of confetti using very similar thread tones. If still you’re keen to tackle this whopper we do think you’ll enjoy stitching the rapturous lovers in the DMC violet tones (grape, lavender, antique violet, antique mauve, fuchsia, eggplant).

PLEASE NOTE: We recommend using the Pattern Keeper App to manage this complex project, look for the extra PK chart in your download pack. Our charts work perfectly with Pattern Keeper.

The Artist
