Introduction to Hardanger Leaflet

Designer Thea Deuck describes this design beautifully:

Large Pillow and small Pincushion  Stitch this beautiful large Pillow with matching Pincushion designed as a beginner’s Hardanger lesson! The little roses are Cross Stitched with luscious silk flosses and the Hardanger is stitched with 2 different sizes of white Perle Cotton. The models are stitched on both white and (optional) hand tea-dyed linen, and we’ve used some special sparkling metallic threads, buttons and silks for the embroidery. Each of the five squares is a manageable size, so you can more easily master Hardanger. The little Pincushion is meant to be stitched first, so you can learn the Kloster Block stitching without having to worry about cutting fabric threads. When you stitch the big pillow, you will learn to cut, withdraw threads, and work the needleweaving of each of the other four squares, progressing step-by-step as you go. Finishing instructions to create the two pillows, both small and large, are also included. Start learning today!  -Thea
