Beautiful 3: Bargello Embroidery

Recently I came across a style of embroidery that I have seen before but did not know it was a special type. It’s called Bargello embroidery.


There are few more examples here and this page has a bunch of interesting links. It appeals to me because of it’s simplicity. It’s the same stitch just moved around on the canvas in various colors and it creates beautiful patterns.


I did a small test of it last night and I like how it looks but I think it would be more fun to do with a smaller count cross stitch fabric, (maybe a 14 count, if that exists, I was using 22 count) and thicker yarn and needles.
