Some of the basic stitches you need to be able to start your first hardanger piece. As you get more familiar with them, you can add in the more complicated types.
This will be build up gradually, so if you don’t see the stitches you want, come back in a week or so.
You can divide the stitches into the following categories. Your base stitches, the wraps, the cut work decorations, and any drawn work.
Your base stitches are the kloster bars (your main stitch) and any other decorative stitches that lie over the top of the material without any cutting or pulling involved.
The wraps and cutwork come in a variety of styles. There is even an example of leaving the bars unwrapped.
After the threads are dealt with, the internal designs go in. The exception is the picot, which gets worked while doing the wrap.
Examples of final drawnwork decorations include the eyelet, drawn star (overgrown eyelet), and the edgeings. Edgings are not necessary if you are going to put this into a frame, pillow, or other accessory, but that really look great for stand alone pieces.
