Straight from the designer's heart, this tile was created with the passion of a true equestrian. Chelsea has been involved with horses her entire life and wanted to do a tribute tile just for the sport. Enjoy this intricate piece with all its related bits and bobs!
We encourage stitchers who purchase this pattern to use kreinik and blending to make it their own. Although charted in black, its always nice to see different colours incorporated on a chart like this.
Blackwork is a historical form of counted embroidery work that was typically used to adorn the cuffs and collars of fine clothing. True blackwork was completely reversible so even if the cuff was flipped inside out, it would look the same. Clothing made with details this fine was only available to Royalty and the elite echelons of society back in the day. This series of patterns uses backstitch and are not designed to be truly reversible – just fun, easy (but intricate) stitching! Enjoy!
