This delightful beginner/intermediate canvaswork design can be worked in the suggested colours, colours of your own choice, or have fun with it as a “stash buster project.” Play with stitches such as Nobuko, Rhodes and eyelets, Smyrna crosses and variations, a Florentine ribbon pattern, and multiple crescent stitches.
