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.
