En dejlig rosa – A lovely rose
A detailed embroidery design with spring flowers, influenced by traditional Scandinavian pattern design.
The pattern’s original color is red (DMC no. 816), which according to Jacob resembles the red color that was commonly used in embroidery in the past.
A very beautiful and detailed tapestry - suitable for any occasion!
"En Dejlig Rosa" is a very old Swedish folk tune. I first heard it through Robyn, and have come across it on several folk records now. It is a beautiful haunting melody, which struck a chord as I was working on this pattern. I decided to name it after this song as it features a selection of spring flowers, to which the girl in the song is compared.- Modern Folk
