Ancient Beauty for the Modern World

This is a FULL Kit and contains DMC cotton floss and Legacy Linen in Coconut cut large enough to allow for the hem.

This beautiful design originates in Byzantium and utilizes both geometric and floral elements to stunning effect. The octagons enclose Byzantine roses and are banded by a stylized meander design which creates a wonderful intricacy. Easy to repeat, this design can be worked in either a red/black/green or red/gold/gray colorway and corner charts are included for both colorways. The stylized birds are optional.

Photos show two different sizes and colorways: the larger embroidery is DMC 310 black, 355 red and 3012 green on Legacy Linen “Sunflower” 36 x 36 inches finished size (you will need a piece 39 x 39 inches to allow for hem).

The smaller embroidery is DMC 729 antique gold, 355 red, and 317 pewter gray on Legacy Linen “Coconut” 17-1/2 x 17-1/2 finished size (you will need a piece 21 x 21 inches to allow for drawn thread hem).

This kit is for the red/gold/gray colorway for the 21 x 21 inch smaller size.
