To describe Nyz as "double layered pattern darning" makes this technique sound easy to master. In practice, it is one of the more difficult ethnic techniques to learn. Nyzynka is named for its unique method of working the base pattern from the reverse side of the fabric. It translates to "from the underneath." Nyz is found in two distinctly diffident forms: the highly colored form fro the Hutsul region and the black and red style from East Podilia. 20 pages. A basic knowledge of Ukrainian Nyzynka is needed. A good resource is Techniques of Ukrainian Nyzynka, sold separately. The pillow band provides experience in using and combining multiple Nyzynka designs.
