This is my first attempt at hardanger and is from a kit that my friend katcal donated to me so that I could practice before I do a big sampler with a lot of this stitch on!





I'm really pleased with how it turned out - I just need to get practicing some more!

I'm really curious about this kind of craft. But haven't tried to look for info about it. Thanks for posting.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

No it really wasn't too difficult - I think if you can find a decent tutorial on it, you would be fine!!

Anyone who can do counted cross stitch on linen or other even weave cloth can probably do hardanger.  It involves lots of counting of little stitches Wink.
