If I had to pick only one type of pattern to stitch for the rest of my life, it would be blackwork-type patterns. They are so varied and you can also “cheat” and fill them in with cross-stitch too so I could get away with a lot in choosing this type of chart for my one type of pattern alone. Imaginesque posts lovely hand embroidery patterns, but they also mix it up and post charts like this from time-to-time as well, so be sure to follow this blog or bookmark them so you can check it out. There are so many ways you could use this little chart – as a filling for a background, as a border, or as a band in a sampler. Get the free chart.
