The wonderful stitcher, Needleartnut, has a charming little Bargello mini-sock on her blog. It was a UFO which she just finished.
It’s one of my favorite kinds of Bargellos. She uses a simple ribbon pattern and stitches it in several different fibers. I often do this using, as she did, an overdye as the theme for the colors.
It’s a simply fantastic way to do a no stress needlepoint project between more challenging pieces. Pull out the threads, trace the outline on your canvas, stitch the first line and then just needlepoint.
Check it out, it’s lovely.
