Krista says- "My high quality cross stitch kits come with specialty counted thread fabric imported from Greece along with a full color SOC (symbol on color) chart that is easy to work from. The raw edges of the fabric are serged for your convenience and the design can be used for additional projects. The "BitKit" series are small kits that give you an easy little taste of traditional Mediterranean embroidery. They're great for travel, to give as a gift, trying out cross stitch, or when you simply want a small project. They make little mats/runners that are great for dressing up a bookcase, your desk, or anywhere you want a little textile love!
This beautiful design originates in Byzantium and utilizes both geometric and floral elements to stunning effect. The octagons enclose Byzantine roses and are banded by a stylized meander design which creates a wonderful intricacy. Worked on 15-count “Mikini” fabric imported from Greece, this is a lovely piece you are sure to treasure!
Finished size is 6 x 8-3/4 inches.
Worked over 57 x 199 sts.
