Avlea Mediterranean Folk Embroidery
Includes chart only.
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 that creates a wonderful intricacy. Easy to repeat, this design can be worked in either a red/black/green or red/gold/grey colorway. The stylized birds are optional.
