Description: This bold design utilizes the unmistakeable teardrop shapes and stylized leaf motifs that make paisley designs so distinctive. The pattern includes blue and red colorways for both the wool version and the floss version. It was designed as a "quarter", which makes it possible to rotate and repeat the design 3 more times for use as a large cushion or perhaps a small rug or a large ottoman covering, depending on the materials used.
Background Information: I've had many requests for a paisley pattern, and decided that such a design would be well-suited for the Wool-Cross technique. Inspiration for the design actually came from one of my husband's bandanas! I found this piece quite a challenge to design (but a lot of fun!), as it's quite a departure from my usual style.
Stitching Comments: This design may look involved, but it's not. It's designed totally in whole stitches, so the stitching goes very quickly. And if you stitch the wool version, the red colorway has only 13 colors and no blends! The blue wool colorway has 15 colors and 2 blends. The floss conversions are of course, more involved as far as blended colors are concerned (There are very few one-to-one matches when converting to floss from the Appleton wool colors!) If you want a larger finished product of the floss version, just use 4 strands of floss and stitch on a 10 count fabric like Tula....or stitch over-two on a fabric like 20-count Lugana.
