Winter Sparkle! - Blackwork

This needlework design features a large poinsettia flower, with leaves filled in color with tiny blackwork motifs - in other words ... redwork.

Different thread colors and texture as well as the variety of patterns used, create a contrast between each leaf, in the same way leaf colors do for the real flower.


Hanging from the main motif is a trio of heart-shaped ornaments as well as a double ring of snowflakes and stars.


Designer Lesley Teare always pays a lot of attention to detail. In this particular design, a thicker black thread, Pearl Cotton 12, is used for the outlines while the lace-like inner motifs are backstitched in a single strand of regular floss.

The pattern includes some gold mettallic highlights for a festive touch, as well as a couple of fractional stitches for extra detail. A tutorial is included with the chart for fractional stitches.
