Swedish Rhombus Folk Embroidery pdf pattern with birds in cross stitch

Swedish Rhombus Folk Embroidery pdf pattern with birds in cross stitch

Instead of working on my next biscornu pincushion, which is halfway complete, I decided to take a nosedive into Swedish Museums. A bit for inspiration, but mostly to procrastinate.

Several hours later I suddenly found myself finishing up a newly drawn pattern from all the traditional headscarves I came across. They came in so many different varieties and all in some form of blackwork. And I love that because it’s also very similar to the traditional head scarves that some Norwegian folk costumes use as well.

I quite like the rhombus shape and for fun I also mixed some colours up to see what it could look like in a two-tone. I wasn’t disappointed. I think it actually looks best as two-tone. But that’s just how I feel about it.
