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. Easy to repeat, this design can be worked in either a red/black/green or red/gold/gray colorway and corner charts are included for both colorways. The stylized birds are optional. 


This design is available as a kit for the smaller size (17-1/2 x 17-1/2") in two colorways:

Black/red/green on Legacy Linen "Sunflower Seed"

Gold/red/peweter on Legacy Linen "Custard Cream" (only 1 left!) or "Coconut Macaroon"

Each kit contains the fabric serged for your convenience, DMC Floss, full color paper pattern, and John James size 24 tapestry needle.
