A Round Dozen

A Round Dozen – 72h x 72w each

Twelve small Hardanger designs, all sharing a recognisable pattern of a diamond within a square, but with a great variety of bars, filling stitches and surface stitches. On 25ct Lugana, they are the perfect size for cards and coasters, so you get more experienced in Hardanger and you end up with 12 useful gifts!

When you have finished all designs you will have practised the following stitches: Kloster blocks and satin stitch; double cable stitch, chain stitch and four-sided stitch; woven bars, wrapped bars, double wrapped bars, X-bars and Y-bars; dove's eye, square filet, spider's web, picot, fan stitch, Greek cross, woven twisted bars, bow-tie stitch and woven picot filling; Rhodes stitch, Queen's stitch, Algerian eye, eyelet, buttonhole wheel, star stitch, French knot, modified sheaf stitch, rice stitch, long-armed double cross stitch, leaf stitch and Chinese lantern.

You can read about variations on the Round Dozen designs in Flights of Fancy.

The designs are also available as 6 sets of two.

Special materials: Anchor metallic perle (optional), Caron Wildflowers (optional), Dinky Dyes perle (optional).

We regret that Dinky Dyes have discontinued their overdyed perle cottons; we suggest choosing similar colours from other manufacturers like Threadworx or Weeks Dye Works, but please be aware that these will not be identical, and the finished project will look different from the stitched model.

See Round the Year mounted in coasters in the Gallery.
Coasters are available in sets of two or four.

Please note that our chart packs are digital and will be emailed to you in PDF format.
