Hardanger embroidery, which originated centuries ago in Scandinavia, has a rich and fascinating tradition. Its eight-pointed star is a universal symbol found in embroidery as far away as India. Gathered in this volume are all the hardanger stitches, techniques, and designs any embroiderer could wish for, along with 50 stunning projects, from samplers and bookmarks to a wedding cushion and a christening gown. Along with classic white designs, there are projects using colored and metallic threads, and even beads. With everything from basic stitches, such as kloster blocks, to intricate tassels and Maltese crosses, this is a comprehensive guide to hardanger.
