Le Café Van Gogh Cross Stitch Pattern

$6.99 USD

Cross Stitch Nightscape

If you love cross stitching fine art how about this stunning replica of Van Gogh’s famous nightscape?

If you can handle full coverage you’ll enjoy recreating the textured brushstrokes, the luminous night sky, and light reflecting from the wet cobblestones. Fantastic.



Le Café Van Gogh cross stitch pattern is a replica of Van Gogh’s 1888 oil painting Café Terrace at Night on the Place du Forum. The original French coffeehouse is still open today and has been refurbished to replicate the scene in the painting.

The Project

Le Café Van Gogh cross stitch is a very large, full coverage cross stitch and requires 200 different DMC colours. It measures 63.5cm x 81.1cm when stitched on 14 count Aida cloth  and you’ll be completing 156,432 stitches. So yeah, it’s big.

This is one of the most challenging projects in our collection because we have replicated the cobblestones and textured brushstrokes in fine detail. We recommend using Pattern Keeper to manage your project and you’ll find an additional PK chart in your download pack.

SYMBOLS: we’ve done our best to use symbols that are easily identified, but sometimes we do miss stuff. Just shoot us an email if you have any concerns about the symbols in this pattern, we don’t mind changing something that’s causing you grief.

The Painting

Van Gogh’s stunning painting is currently held at the Kröller-Müller Museum in the Netherlands. Here is some more about the painting from the museum website:

“Van Gogh had intended to make a nocturnal painting for some time. And not one in the conventional manner, in shades of black and grey, but actually with an abundance of colours.

Equally unconventional is that he paints this gas-lit terrace of a café in Arles in situ and in the dark, because colours have a different appearance during the day than by night.”

The Artist

Vincent Van Gogh was a Dutch Post-impressionist painter who might just be the world’s most famous artist. His work is defined by his bright colours and thick, expressive brush strokes. We are so excited about charting our favourite Vincent Van Gogh paintings in cross stitch patterns. Keep calling back to the store as we add more and more.
