Learn the basics of Hardanger embroidery with this pretty blue and green Hardanger panel. When finished, the panel could be applied to a bag or a book cover, or made into a pincushion, biscornu, doily, sachet or needle book. Each of the stitches will be taught, so absolute beginners are completely catered for, though it will probably help if you have some counted stitching experience.
This sampler is one in the true sense of the word. It can be stitched in its entirety for a splendid display of Hardanger motifs, during the working of which you will sample a number of stitches and get to know them very well. Alternatively, you can take each square of design - there are fifteen of them - and use them individually for coasters, cards or biscornus. None of them takes very long to stitch and all are perfect for impressing friends and family
