A lively pattern of crosses set within a grid of squares, this type of brightly colored design is often found in Ukrainian embroidery on both garments and nabraznyks, a highly decorative cloth placed over icons in the home. A lovely border that makes a versatile cloth suitable for a table centerpiece or on a shelf, its red and blue colorway has a cheerful energy. This design is easy to repeat to make larger cloths.
