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
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.
