Runner of Red DMC Remnants (2023)

Size approx. 128 x 30 cm.

Embroidered on linen (8 threads/cm) with 3 partial threads in the needle.

Full cross stitches and back-stitches are used for the motifs. Contour stitches are used for the stripes in the background.

Use black thread to divide the fabric into 12 transverse fields. Mark where each motif should be placed.

Divide the yarn into cold and warm colors. The largest remainder is used for the motifs.

Embroider motifs from the center and out. This makes it easy to check that the pattern always fits.

For the background, distribute the warm colors in every other field. Then fill in the rest of the fields with the cold colors.

The pattern is free – enjoy!

This table runner can be made with any DMC remains you have lying around. It is embroidered on linen canvas (8 threads/cm) with contour stitches.

First, the canvas is divided into 2 x 12 fields with 3 threads as spaces.

Then, the threads are divided into yellow-green and blue-green shades.

After this, the DMC remains are distributed in the 24 fields. Start with the yellow-green fields.
