Ornate meander-style borders are found throughout Mediterranean art and textiles, from carvings on columns to decorative painting on vases to elaborately embroidered bands on cushions and garments. This arresting border features slanted scrolls outlined with a delicate floral motif and then positioned in double bands for a unique and striking effect. Worked in a single color of floss, it is an easy design to adapt to your desired length and colorway, as you simply work the design either shorter or longer and use the floss color of your choice.

My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the runner in the photos--30 count Mikini 100% mercerized cotton in bright white (imported from Greece), DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern with both a close up and a full size schematic so you know how many repeats to work, 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!
