How Do I Love Thee? Embroidery Pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • backstitch
  • french knot

Pattern Description:

The pattern was inspired by one of my favorite movies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It's from a love letter that Roger Rabbit writes to Jessica Rabbit and reads "How do i love thee? Let me count the ways. One one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand, five one-thousand, six one-thousand, seven one-thousand, eight one-thousand, nine one-thousand...."

The pattern includes instructions for how to stitch it on aida cloth (usually used for cross-stitch) as well as tightly woven fabrics (usually used for embroidery). It has four separate diagrams including the text alone for counted stitches on aida cloth, the text alone for tightly woven fabrics, the notebook paper alone, and the text and notebook paper together.

Stitch it for your loved one for Valentine's Day, your anniversary, or just because. I hope it makes you smile!

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 7" circle
  • includes instructions for changing size of finished project


  • 11" square cloth (aida or tightly woven)
  • red, turquoise, and navy blue embroidery floss or #12 perle cotton
