This is the first pattern of the Yin Yang project.
Yin and Yang are Chinese concepts.
Yin and Yang are two contradictory elements of the universe.
The universe: everything that is, therefore also everything that is not is called TAO.
It is not possible to know or understand the TAO, it shows itself in two contradictory values: Yin and Yang.
They are not absolute opposites like good and evil they only exist in relation to each other.
Yin is linked with the dark moon (witch it is turned away from the sun) and corresponds to female nature.
Yang is connected with the clear sun and corresponds to male nature.
A good balance between Yin and Yang brings harmony and prosperity.
The original Yin Yang sign is in black and white.
I designed four colored patterns and played with the shape.
I did embroider this pattern with cross-stitches using Au Ver à Soie-Soie d’Alger silk.
In this pattern, it is important that the colors change fluently.
In 2018 DMC came with 35 new colours. Now it was finally possible to convert this pattern to DMC.
Only full cross-stitches are used.
You will find the amount of cross stitches used each colour in the pattern.
Are you a fan of Yin Yang, buy pattern 98 it contains all four patterns.
