Inspired by the simplicity of Scandinavian design, this holiday dove pattern is perfect year-round. Stitches in dramatic navy blue focus place the focus on texture rather than colour, but you can add or change up the palette with your own floss to create your own unique interpretation. And you control the difficulty - keep it easy by using the most basic back stitch throughout, or ramp up the challenge with chain stitches, French knots, or more. Either way, cosy up with a cup of tea on a cool night and relax with this one of 3 holiday hygge patterns.
Your friends and family will undoubtedly be very impressed by your finished creation. Be prepared for adulation - and possibly a little envy too. (You deserve it!)

All of Hook, Line & Tinker’s embroidery illustrations are original and designed by Laurie Dolhan. Each illustration is repeatedly rendered through the craft of hand embroidery using a variety of basic stitches to build texture and a pleasing design. The pattern evolves with each hand rendering with attention to texture and technique. Through this process, instructions for completing each design are developed. The 100% cotton fabric is cut and prepared by hand, and all finalized patterns are printed onto the fabric in the studio using inks that maintain their integrity during the stitching process. Each kit is packed by hand. Packaging is designed to be lightweight and compact to reduce environmental impacts via shipping, and paper, including recycled paper, have been used rather than single use plastics.
