Thank for yours comment ! I will try Hardanger on 14 ct.Aida on my next work and I will see..... ( maybe a small project )
I've done Hardanger on Aida, but it wasn't easy! It was a simple design using PC 3 on a small towel with an Aida insert for a border. I was surprised, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to pull the threads. But I still wouldn't recommend it if you want to do a larger project.

I never tried it, but I think the best result you can get with evenwave fabric.
Iris: I tried that to see if it would work. Here is the sample.
Here is the same design worked 3 ways: kloster blocks 4x4 threads, kloster blocks 6x6 threads and the one on 14 count aida.
I think it looks OK. But I haven't tried washing it, so I don't know if the structure of the cloth makes it less secure. One problem I did have in working it is that I had to use a thick needle to hold the pearl 3. The needle plus the thread at the eye made a thick node to pull through the cloth. The hole was really too small, so every stitch was a battle to pull the needle through the hole. Very annoying. I doubt I will do that again. If I want to work that large again, I will try a single weave cloth.
I can't imagine doing Hardanger on Aida fabric, it can't be easy to pull the threads.
Someone did hardanger with 14 ct.Aida fabric and # 3 pearl cotton thread instead of 22 ct. Aida and # 5 thread ? How it looks ?
I wish you a wonderful Valentine, be loved and to love is a great gift.
