In this pillow, the woven-in stripe runs down the middle between two needle-weaving bands.

These are 9-unit bands with mirrored patterns

and a pattern segment of 18 bundles.

The centers of the segments are formed by two wrapped bundles joined in the middle.

The two needle-weaving bands were bordered on both sides by peahole hemstitches, which makes them appear more airy. Also, the “X’s” of the Peaholes match very well with the x-shaped wrapped bundles in the centers of the segments.

Similar to the needle-waeving band of pillow B, the needle-weaving bands on this pillow only run across the front. The ends were secured with Blanket stitches and decorated with half-eyelet scallops. The needle-waeving was tied to the remaining fabric at the level of every one and a half unit.

In my documentation Schwalm Needle-Weaving Bands I have already shown 193 (!) different patterns .

Information on the individual categories and detailed descriptions of the working methods can be found in Lesson #4 – Needle-Weaving Band Sampler.
