Featuring jewel-tone colors of garnet, peacock blue, and bright coral, this design is similar to many varieties of folk embroideries from as far north as Russia to as far south as Crete. The diamond-and-arrow design is very striking and shows how a simple border makes a bold and eye-catching embroidery.

 

Finished size of embroidery is 18.5 x 18.5 inches (your hem technique will add a bit more to the finished size of the embroidery)

Worked over 240 x 240 sts.

 

My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the runner in the photos--26 count 100% cotton Traditional Groundcloth (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!
