Lesson #4 is a stand-alone unit that only requires some basic knowledge of embroidery. It deals with different needle-weaving band patterns. Needle-weaving hems or bands are, next to the Peahole hem, most important in Schwalm whitework; there are more than 200 different known patterns.
You will learn how to
• establish thread bundles,
• establish bridges,
• secure withdrawn thread ends,
• work units,
• change the width of bridges,
• read a diagram,
• remove extra bundles,
• increase the number of bundles, and
• work spiders.

The project in the booklet is worked on 14 threads/cm natural coloured linen from the Übelhör linen mill in Austria. One can use any evenweave (or nearly evenweave) linen that is densely woven with a thread count between 13.5/cm and 16/cm. Weddigen linen #160 with 13.5 threads/cm is well suited.
But if one wants to have the same linen to get the same result as shown in the booklet, a kit is available. Kit #4 contains all materials required to complete lesson #4.
