• About Golden Kite Patterns and Kits

    First page with color pictureThe Golden Kite patterns are the most sophisticated cross stitch patterns available.

    The resulting stitched masterpiece is always very close to the original motif.

    There are never any fractional stitches anywhere, just ordinary cross stitches are used.

    DMC floss is used for all patterns.

    The patterns are created carefully by us to achieve the highest degree of quality for those who want something out of the ordinary.

    A special blending technique is used to obtain a maximum level of detail and shading.

    All our pattern pictures always show the actual colors and quality of the cross stitch as it will appear when finished (except for any copyright text, of course, that is not part of the pattern...).

    We keep in very close relationship with our customers and we are always available for questions or comments.


    What's included



    The patterns contain a color picture of the motif, instructions, floss list and lists of the amount of floss and what fabric size to use together with the actual pattern pages.

    The instruction sheet gives information of how to get the best result working with our products.

    If you ever have any additional questions or find anything unclear, you are always welcome to send us an email.

    You do not need a color printer to print the pattern (if you select e-mail delivery). The pattern will look perfect on any printer. If you select snail-mail delivery you will get a color print of the first page (the motif page).

    Please Note! The actual quality of the printed pages is much higher than the compressed sample images below.

      Can I ask?
      I have as much 14 count Aida as I will ever need plus four floss boxes . I know that that means that I will not have every colour of DMC and will need to get more dependent upon which of your charts I choose to use.
      But I was looking at pictures of WIps on your forum and thought that the coverage of the 14 count aida with two strands produced a balder? looking project? Or maybe not? Difficult to see.
      My question is whether you would advise to use four strands of floss on 14 count? Or does anyone else do this?
      Thanks

      Hi Denise, and welcome to Golden Kite! I'm sorry, I can't answer your question. I always use 18 count fabric and find the coverage wonderful with two strands. I guess you would have to try a test piece with four strands to see if it will be too thick, bearing in mind that in high confetti areas it could get really tight. If you purchased a solid chart, you could always use three strands.

      This site hasn't been very active lately, so if you ask the question on the Golden Kite Facebook page you may get more response. I'd love to hear what you decide to do and which chart you choose!

    Thank you Bobbie! Actually the black isn't that bad to stitch on because I have a good light and a magnifier. The hardest stitching is the darker colours

    Wendy, David is looking quite good. You're braver than I am stitching him on black fabric. I tried stitching a small sampler-type design on navy blue
