“Possum Pattern – Blackwork” is a replica of one of the illustrations in the book, Miss Echidna’s Dilemma. This particular embroidery is completed in blackwork embroidery, which is rather like sketching in needle and thread. It is stitched on even weave fabric, using repeated patterns to create the design.
This pattern would be a great introduction to blackwork for someone who has done some cross-stitch embroidery, and would like to explore the techniques of blackwork.
Very detailed instructions are included, together with a clear pattern and complete list of requirements.
