First, in the established Limet grid, one row of Rose stitches is worked along the diagonal axis using Coton à broder No. 25.
Then, using Coton à broder No. 30 and always starting at the meeting points of two Rose stitches, 7 stitches of a simple square eyelet are worked counterclockwise. For more detailed description please refer to my book “Limetrosen I”.

On the return pass, one more row of 7 stitches of the simple square eyelet is worked – each step is worked mirrored and staggered so that the stitched sections interlock.
And then another Rose stitch row is worked.

One Rose stitch row and two rows of interlocking square eyelet sections always alternate.

After laundering, starching and ironing the pattern gets its full charm.

  1. What a beautiful pattern, looks perfect on these shapes! Thank you for the tutorial!

    • Hi Judy,
      There are so many beautifuls patterns for Schwalm whitework. Some are better for heart shapes, some for tulips ….
      It is not always easy to find the right pattern – so I try to show different examples.
      Thank you for your comment

  2. So nice thanks to share this

    • Thank you!
      There are so many nice filling patterns. My idea is to show them all in a thumbnail-overview like a pinterest wall. But it is soo much work to prepare such a wall – and my time is always running away.
