Suitable for more experienced stitchers
This kit includes 18 count canvas, a colour block chart, detailed instructions, Appletons crewel wool, and a suitable needle. Fine thread to make the fringe is also included. When finished, the stitched area measures 9 x 7¼ inches (23 x 18.5 cm) (adding a fringe will increase the length of the carpet by about 3/4 of an inch).
Style: Georgian (1714 – 1830) / Aubusson (French)
This large carpet is a stunning example of the Aubusson style, which was so popular in Georgian times. The restful shades of the beige and blue swirls are set off by the dusty rose clusters in the centre and each corner of the carpet. Why not try it in a drawing room setting, for instance?[See also: other kits in matching design]
