Suitable for those with a little stitching experience
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 7¾ x 5 inches (20 x 13 cm) (adding a fringe will increase the length of the carpet by about 3/4 of an inch).
Style: Oriental (eg Chinese/Persian)
The Chinese style of decoration, for everything from porcelain to cabinets, became hugely popular in Britain in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. This carpet features the almost ‘Greek key’ motif along with the swirls so characteristic of Chinese design.[See also: other kits in matching design]
