Made with Ombré yarn no. 53 from DMC. I have cut the yarn into lengths so that the pieces change from dark to light. The dark end of the yarn begins at the bottom of each strip in the pattern so that the light end of the yarn ends at the top of the trees. The stitches are contour stitches and half cross stitches. Stitched with a partial thread in the needle on 10 thread linen canvas 10 threads per cm. The runner’s finished size is approx. 69 x 23 cm
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.
I love to use black thread. It makes the image very sharp and clear. I found this design of a “double Christmas tree” in my archives from 2007. It’s about time to get it out in the light! The finished size is approx. 24½ x 30 cm, stitched on linen, 12 threads pr. cm.
This Christmas tree carpet was designed in 1991. Originally, the pattern was hand drawn, and I’ve recently made a computerized version with all the little details (like the many needles). Size, approx. 142 x 142 cm. Stitched with woolen thread on hessian fabric using cross stitches, and long stitches for the needles.
Use this as a tablecloth or, as shown, a runner. Size approx. 124 x 75 cm. Stitched on linen (10 threads pr. cm.) with flora-cotton (1 thread), or DMC (two threads) using cross, back, contour, and quadratic stitches. Continue the pattern all the way to the edges of the linen.
