Our Lady of Shalott cross stitch pattern was inspired by the 1888 literary painting by British artist John William Waterhouse. It’s one of Waterhouse’s most famous paintings and is currently displayed at The Tate in London.
The original painting was inspired by a series of Arthurian poems by Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Lady of Shalott and Lancelot and Elaine.
We think you’ll love stitching the tragic maiden with her tapestries on her way to Camelot. The DMC earthtones (golden brown, desert sand, shell pink, red copper, and straw) recreate the river grasses and foliage in stunning detail.
Lady of Shalott cross stitch is a large, full coverage project that measures 54.4cm x 41.7cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth. You’ll need 59 different DMC colours to recreate the Lady of Shalott’s tapestries and river boat.
PLEASE NOTE: your download pack includes an extra chart that has been formatted for Pattern Keeper App. We recommend using PK for full coverage projects.
John William Waterhouse was an English painter who lived between 1849 and 1917. He was famous for his paintings of Arthurian legend, mythology, and literary characters.
His paintings are incredibly lifelike, and we adore his natural backgrounds of wildflowers and mysterious water pools. Check out more cross stitch patterns inspired by John William Waterhouse here in our store.
