Florentine embroidery design "cathedral"

design "cathedral"

design "cathedral"
design by Jos Hendriks

This pattern is quite easy to make and suitable as a first try in Florentine embroidery. When the first row of zigzag stitches in one color has been made the following rows above and under that first row are easy to make: they are identical with that first row, only the color is different. All stitches are made over 6 threads, but sometimes they staggered one threads up or down, sometimes they staggered 4 threads up or down. Five shades of brown are used from very dark to very light.

Below you find two very clear working-drawings.
