This listing is for an electronic (pdf) version of the hardanger pattern Crossways. The difficulty level of this pattern is Delirious (very difficult).
This is a Rabid Designs original pattern for a piece made for Valdani Threads to display at their trade shows. It's an advanced design and so it includes no hardanger instructions, only the information you'll need to complete the pattern and links to books and other information that will help you if you don't know the stitches.
I'm particularly proud of this design because I love designing and stitching larger pieces. They still stitch up so quickly but I get to play around with whatever stitches I'm in love with at the time because there's going to be enough room to fit them in.
The highlight of this particular pattern is that one of the stitches in this design is from an old book I found. I haven't seen it done like this in current embroidery books, but I love reviving old stitches and this one was definitely worth it. Information on how to do the stitch is linked in the pattern so you can fall in love as well!
Thank you for looking at my work. There will be more innovative patterns to come, so you might want to add me to favorites so you don't miss out!
I will email a copy of the pattern to whatever email address is provided by paypal unless you instruct me to do otherwise and I'm available by email for basic help with the design as well...just in case.
I can not say what I like about the product because I have not received anything yet. I have sent two e-mails asking about it but still have not heard anything!
