Dyeing Linen?
2 Replies

I'm having a terrible time finding linen in a high enough thread count in the color (close to DMC 738) that I'm trying to get for Lefkaritiko.  Would it be feasible/possible to dye white linen myself…Continue

Graph paper for Hardanger patterns

Are ALL Hardanger patterns made on graph paper with a darker line every 10 squares?  Or would every five squares be equally acceptable?  I can do either one, just wondering whether there is a standard.  The only patterns I have so far are from the booklet I learned from and one other book (not an instructional book), so I don't have much to go by.  When I made my one pattern years ago, I made it on graph paper with a darker grid line every five lines (probably because that's what I had on…See More
