This is the main motif in Anne’s design called “A Brocade Effect.” In her instructions for the design she suggest using two tones of a color, creating what I call “needlepoint damask.”
This is a large pattern, so it is suitable by itself as a focal point of a design. If you are going to use it as a damask for a background, the piece should be large. Space the motifs 1.5 to 2 inches away from each other.You can then scatter smaller motifs, such as diamonds, fleur de lis, or flowers in the open areas.You can then scatter smaller motifs, such as the diamond in the center of the design, fleur de lis, or flowers in the open areas.
The pattern is 44 threads square. Click on the thumbnail for the full size chart.
