This beautiful design originates in Byzantium and utilizes both geometric and floral elements to stunning effect. The octagons enclose Byzantine roses and are banded by a stylized meander design which creates a wonderful intricacy. Worked on 15-count “Mikini” fabric imported from Greece, this is a lovely piece you are sure to treasure!
Finished size is 6 x 8-3/4 inches.
Worked over 57 x 199 sts.
My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the embroidery in the photos--30 count Mikini 100% mercerized cotton (imported from Greece), DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
