This intermediate-level band includes three large-format filling stitches that demonstrate the creation and use of curves and circles to create striking flower-like designs. The components of the filling stitches are traditional, including wrapped and woven bars, adjoining wrapped bars, buttonhole arcs and buttonhole eyelets in #12 pearl cotton. The band is completed with Smyrna cross stitches and smaller flowers/stars of satin stitches. Color choices include traditional whitework and soft lavender/sage. Suggested supplies: 8" of 25 count white Dublin linen (if stitching together with other 2016 Retreat bands, you will need a 12" piece); DMC pearl cotton #8 white or 524 and 3042; #12 in white or 524 and 3042.
