Free: Swedish wall decoration from 1861

0,00 kr

143 x 116 Stitches. Stitched in full cross-stitches with two colors. This is a PDF-pattern only.


This pattern is created after a Swedish wall decoration or tablecloth from 1861. This is the embroidered end piece of a longer white linen cloth that would have been used to decorate the home during holidays and family gatherings.

This type of decoration is called “Hängkläde” and can be horizontal or vertical. There are examples of hängkläden that are fully or partially embroidered and over five meters long; they could be large enough to decorate the full length of a wall.

The pattern image in the product gallery is only a preview of one of the motifs. Download the PDF file for the full pattern.
The pattern uses full cross-stitches with two colors: DMC 3832 and DMC 3713. You can replace these colors with any two colors, or use one color.
This project works well for using scrap threads. My personal favorite of the three motifs is the center motif, which you could use for a pin-cushion or similar small project.
