Mediterranean Folk Cross Stitch Pattern - Balkan Diamond and Arrow
Adapted from vintage Greek embroidery patterns,this design is a modern update of a traditional pattern that preserves the beauty and intricacy of the original designs.
Featuring jewel-tone colors of garnet, peacock blue, and bright coral,this design by Avlea is similar to many varieties of folk embroideries from as far north as Russia to as far south as Crete. The diamond-and-arrow design is very striking and shows how a simple border makes a bold and eye-catching embroidery.
This design is available as a printed pattern only (you provide the fabric and thread) or as a full kit. The kit includes thread plus traditional Greek cotton fabric which has an open weave and a lovely soft hand.
Stitching area: 240 stitches wide x 240 stitches high
