No. 447
category: Limet-Filling pattern
stitches used: Satin stitches over one square in the width and 6 squares in the height as well as Rose stitches
longitudinal axis: withdrawn thread line

First, in the established Limet grid, work Satin stitches as “Wickerwork of double bars with gaps”.
Therefore work pairs of bars consisting of 18 Satin stitches (6 squares) over one square (3 threads).
In each row always alternate the direction of the double bars from vertical to horizontal.

And in subsequent rows, work the double bars opposite from how they were worked in the previous row.

Work one Rose stitch in each of the remaining squares. Moving from one stitch to the next, please slide the working thread through the backs of the previously worked stitches so that the traveling thread is invisible from the front.

Washed, starched and ironed the pattern gets its full charm.
This example was worked on 17/cm thread-count old handwoven linen with Coton à broder No. 20.

Such a pattern is also attractive utilizing more space. In the example below it was worked on 13.5/cm thread-count linen with Coton à broder No. 25.

  2. Hallo,
    vielen Dank für die wundervollen Anregungen.
    Ich habe gerade mein zweites Herz vollendet, und bin von den Schwälmer
    Flächenfüllmustern total begeistert.
    Das heutige Muster gefällt mir unheimlich gut.
    Liebe Grüße,
