This design is taken from a vintage Ukrainian scarf from the 1970s and is a glorious example of the intricacy and vibrancy of folk embroidery of Ukraine. It features a wealth of motifs—from diamonds to scrolls to arches—and is worked in a traditional color palette of red and black accented with peaock blue, rich gold, and bright green. Shown worked as a cushion cover, it can also be used for a table runner or icon scarf.


Finished size (exclusive of finishing): 8.5 x 12 inches

Stitch count: 147 x 197 inches/16265 total sts/4948 backstitches


My high quality kits come with everything you need to make the runner in the photos--Mikini 30ct in white, 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!
