 Blackwork Challenge I


This is great for learning blackwork.
It looks complicated but isn't, apart from a few little trick areas.

You start in the center & work outwards, building the rows one

by one until you have the overall effect which is bound to impress.

It can be done in any colour scheme you want.

If you are learning, it is best to choose an Aida fabric.
