A modern twist

Put a modern twist on this Eastern design with this willow pattern classic ……….
Fresh style Willow pattern 001
This willow pattern design is based on one of the many blue and white china pieces I have collected over the years. The pattern is simplified  which helps define the shades of blue from the palest to the darkest  making it both striking and simple to stitch. This iconic design is a favourite with many, as this distinctive and elaborate pattern has been popular since the 18 century.

Although shown here stitched on evenweave it can be successfully stitched on 14 count Aida but the stitched design would then need to be framed.

Find this design in the latest issue of Cross Stitcher magazine, issue 277.
