Bargello Biscornu   #123  “Biscornu Set in Two Colourways...”
                                                                          Online Finishing Instructions.

This luscious set of “Smalls” is so beautiful, dainty and elegant! The 5 squares around the outside of the biscornu include some beautiful Hardanger cut work & weaving. On the violet and blue Biscornu it is done on a separate colour light blue linen, using white Perle Cottons. On the Christmas version, you can see it's done on the same linen, uisng Cream Perle Cotton and metallic gold for that extra glitter..! The tops and bottoms include Bargello, using delicious silks and metallics, as well as tiny blossoms made of silk ribbon, and some sparkling gold beads. There is even a tiny scissors fob for each colourway to match. One side of the fob is worked with the Bargello and tiny flower, and the other is worked with the Hardanger motif to match..! With all the various colours in this design, you have many matching backing fabric colours to choose from. You will also learn a few specialty stitches.  There are Silk Ribbon stitches, Bargello, Kloster Blocks, wrapping bars and Dove's Eyes, as well as Laizy Daisy Stitches for leaves.. perfectly adorable for either Spring and winter or Christmas seasons. Which colourway will you choose? Perhaps, like, me, you'll enjoy stitching both of them and give the red and green version away to your dearest friend for Christmas! You will be proud to use this elegant set at your next guild meeting or stitcher’s gathering! Have fun stitching! :) - Thea

Sorting The Threads in your Accessory Pack:
Remember to sort in daylight near a window, not under artificial light indoors.. as the colours change with the colour of the lightbulbs we use. Each floss has a different number of strands in each thread length. This helps you differentiate the different colours in your pack.

The Needlepoint Inc has 8 strands per length
The Kreinik Mori has 6 strands per length
The Gloriana Overdyed Silk has 12 thin strands per length

FYI: We noticed that some colours have been divided into two lengths. This can happen if a colour requires 1.5 yards. Our kitmaker might include one 1 yard length and one 0.5 yard length, so don't get confused if one colour has more than one length of thread. We hope this extra information will help you sort your threads more easily!
