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.
