Three charts for early 20th century Icelandic embroideries.Three charts for early 20th century Icelandic embroideries.In the series of embroidery charts produced by the TRC, we would like to present three very different floral examples of embroidery worked on early-twentieth century hand-knitted gloves from Iceland.

These and other charts will be included in the forthcoming third volume of the Encyclopedia of Embroidery series, published by Bloomsbury in London. Please feel free to copy the charts and start embroidering. We recommend the cross stitch. If you click on the illustration, you will see a pdf-file that can be enlarged.
