The Complete Book of Hardanger
The New Anchor Book of Hardanger Embroidery Stitches
The New Anchor Book of Hardanger Embroidery
Hardanger embroidery is a type of openwork originating in Norway. Its key characteristic is the kloster block formed by working groups of satin stitches; between the blocks, the fabric threads are cut and withdrawn to leave holes and bars of loose fabric threads that can then be embellished by needleweaving and the use of decorative stitches. This essential guide covers materials and equipment, perfecting the Hardanger basics, and a range of decorative stitches worked step-by-step including lace stitch fillings and wheel patterns. Traditionally Hardanger motifs were worked white on white, however many of the featured designs explore how colour can be effectively introduced. There are charts for 36 border and motif designs and a range of project ideas show how these can be used to make attractive gifts or items for the home.
