This spectacular cross stitch pattern chart was inspired by the legendary Bayeux Tapestry which is, in fact, an embroidery mixing stem stitch, straight stitch and laid work. Cross stitch was chosen to make this project available to all levels of embroiderers. The Bayeux Tapestry is immense measuring almost 64 metres in length, so choosing just a few scenes was not easy. There had to be boats, horses and a few of the main figures. A map was added to point out the places evoked in the Bayeux Tapestry. As for the tassels, they are there to show the seven colours used in the original embroidery. All this is explained in detail on the back of the large pattern chart. This poster chart measures 68 x 80cm, making the motifs easy to follow. It is printed on matt paper so you can use a crayon to mark reference points when needed. Apart from historical details, the back of this chart has all necessary explanations for the embroidery and tassels. Size of motif: 337 x 337 points.
