Runner stitched using cross- and back-stitches on linen, 10 threads/cm. Size approx. 28 x 102 cm.
The pattern was created from a black and white sketch, using a PC. Some of the initial sketch lines were edited a bit, to make them better suited for back-stitches. The light grey stitches help to make the pattern more clear, and the blue stitches gives the pattern form. The dark silver stitches are added along the edges for more detail.
