Chequerboard - i116 Kit

by Maria Rita Faleri

Stylish table mat with effective use of pulled thread embroidery.



Alternating blocks of four-sided stitch and satin stitch work in harmony to create this stylish table mat.

Worked onto 20-count white linen, the sparse weave and firm stitch tension open up the fabric to create lace-like patterns, creating squares of circles contrasting with squares of straight lines.

Stitched with perlé cotton, the lacy appearance is further enhanced with a linear border and delicate picot hem.
