When working Openwork patterns, one must always begin by making a grid by withdrawing every other pair of length- and crosswise fabric threads.

The established grid is stabilized by working Single Faggot stitched from the back. Afterwards the grid can be embellished with different patterns.

Included herein are only different seamless Openwork Needleweaving patterns – 175 in all. Working these is described in easy to understand step-by-step pictures.

There are tips for efficient working orders and for choosing the right pattern for specific motifs, and some embroidered examples. In the book you will find the same Schwalm design – a border comprised of a tulip, bud, circle and leaves – completed 8 separate times, each with different Openwork Needleweaving patterns. In this way, one can compare the different effects of the individual patterns.

One can look into the book in “shop”.
