This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled La Belle Dame Sans Merci designed from a painting by Sir Frank Dicksee shows chivalry at its finest with a knight rescuing a damsel in distress and placing her onto the saddle of his horse. Her gratitude is evident as she leans forward looking into his eyes to thank him. She has an abundance of red hair captured with a wreath of flowers and is wearing a dress the color of rhubarb. The knight himself is infatuated by the woman and a little overwhelmed, but not put off by her forwardness. He is stunned by her beauty. The title in English actually means "the beautiful lady without pity." This is a beautiful romantic scene certainly worth the stitch for all of you romantics at heart. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
