Kallithea is a vibrant and popular spot on the island of Rhodes where designs like this would have been stitched in the 19th century to ornament Greek homes. A simple pinwheel motif is worked in small blocks in alternating colors which creates a lively and energetic effect. Shown finished as a table square, it can also be finished as a cushion cover.


Finished size (exclusive of finishing): 13-1/2 x 14-3/8 inches

Note: White Traditional Groundcloth has a slightly uneven count which mimics handwoven fabrics so this design will be slightly larger in one direction even though it is the same number of sts in both directions

Stitch count: 180 x 180sts/12224 total sts


My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the runner in the photos--26ct 100% cotton Traditional Groundcloth, DMC floss, full color SOC (symbol-on-chart) pattern with both a close up and a full size schematic so you know how many repeats to work, along with a John James size 24 tapestry needle. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience, so you can start stitching as soon as you open the kit!
