More Information

Bargello, also known as Florentine work, dates from the 17th century, and is a canvaswork craft worked in wools or silks. It is characterised by parallel lines of straight stitches in 'wave', 'flame' or similar formations. Part of the beauty of bargello lies in the simplicity of the stitch. The repeat patterns build into stunning designs which often have a three-dimensional effect.

This book includes thirty-four stitch patterns, incorporating colour photographs, charts and instructions, providing a mixture of traditional and contemporary designs to suit all tastes. Advice is given on suitable canvas, needles and choosing yarn and suggestions are given for applications of the finished bargello pieces.
