Karin Holmberg's embroidery pattern is inspired by traditional Swedish cross stitch designs from the province of Gästrikland. The final result is an elegant graphic pattern, which would look just as good on your office wall as in your summer cottage.
The color scheme is in turquoise, with dmc's color no. 958 - but this frame is suitable for all colors. Karin suggests you could also try it in red or black!
I was inspired by The Swedish Pattern Book Part XII: Cross Stitch Designs from Gastrikland. The Swedish Pattern Book is a series of booklets with embroidery patterns from different parts of the country. They were released by Oskar Eklund Publisher and this particular part is from 1938 and cost 2 SEK. - Karin Holmberg
