Backstitch pattern of a tablecloth with a compass rose.

SKU: 126_EN Categories: , , , , Tags: ,


We have a little boat so we had to have a tablecloth with a compass rose on our garden table.
The challenge with this pattern was to translate the diagonal lines of the rose to the squares of the pattern creating lines with consistent distances for the back stitches.
I did embroider this pattern whit one strand, instead I had better used two strands.
In the middle of the picture you find the compass rose that I have embroidered.
The other roses are examples of possible color combinations.
You will find these alternative colour ranges in the pattern description.
Of course you can also choose to embroider the entire compass rose whit one colour.
The size of the compass rose depends on the type of fabric you use.
The picture shows the Dutch capitals N,O,Z,W, this English version of the pattern comes with N,E,S,W.
