Giovanni's Alphabet
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles

 

 

Designer Deborah A. Dick of Tempting Tangles tells of her inspiration for Giovanni's Alphabet:

 

"Inspiration for this design was provided in 1561 by artist and needlework designer, Giovanni Ostaus, who created his constructed-style alphabet as well as his other magnificent lace designs and presented them to the world in his “La Vera Perfittione del Disegno”, (The True Perfection of Design) , self-published in Venice, Italy. 

The chart format Giovanni used set a standard for design lay-out using grids or squares- it was the very first needlework chart or grid as we know and use it now to create our needlework!

The unique reticello lace alphabet has been re-created here with some changes to make it suitable for cross stitch. These large letters along with the hunt scene, and the wide band of reticello lace-like loops, eyelets, “picots” and other geometric shapes (created with back-stitches and straight stitches) make this a truly unique design. "


Creative Poppy says:

This is an exceptional needlework design that will tempt many an expert stitcher. While the base design is cross stitch, it includes many specialty stitches and is packed with interesting detail. It is exceptional also by its size and the elegant composition of the design. Note: The original piece was stitched over 1 on 28 count using silk floss.

The chart comes with both a color overview chart, and a detailed black and white chart with extensive instructions describing all specialty stitches.
