Swedish biscornu - free pattern

Hej, jag har gjort en svensk biscornu korsstygnsmönster för er.

Well, I hope that above sentence is more or less correct. ;) I am very busy lazy learning Swedish.

Anyway, my newest cross stitch pattern for you is based on Swedish motifs. To be exact, motifs from Skåne, in the south of Sweden.

One characteristics of these patterns is that all the surface is covered with stitches. They have created huge pieces with this method. True, they often used low-count Aida and thick (sometimes wool) embroidery thread. Also, lot of embroidery was made with long-armed cross stitch (although I am not so sure if this is typical of Skåne or some other parts of the country) which gives a better coverage.

I love the colour combinations of these patterns, I tried to follow them as closely as I could.

First, here is a biscornu pattern. I hope you will like it. I have some more plans, so watch this place!

I have a lot of new photos to share with you: I have made some lovely felt-embroidery, I have my own space in a local craft shop, I have sewn a curtain for my balcony door and I have started a weaving experiment. I would like to show you all of these. Unfortunately I have no idea where my camera cable is... Cleaning in progress, so there is hope. As soon as I find it, I will be back. :)

Hope you all are having a lovely summer - not like us here in Sweden. :( Summer has been cancelled this year.

I really like that one. Will get that done in the future. Saving the chart. It's brilliant. And lends it's self to many different colours too.

Very interesting to learn about Skane and it's way of stitching. The colours in the pattern remind me of autumn. Thank you for the chart!
