Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Swedish weaving embroidery pattern posts are one of the most viewed on this blog. It could be because it’s easy to learn and the designs look very complicated but really aren’t.

If you’re interested in learning Swedish (Huck) Embroidery, I have two previous blogs that will take you step-by-step through the process, beginning with the tools you’ll need.

You can find those posts in their entirety using these links:

How to do Swedish (Huck) Weaving Embroidery

I really like the patterns I’m sharing today, they are geometric and colorful. Starting from a very easy wave pattern to a more intricate zig-zag.

Here’s the full page of design patterns, I’ll post each individually after it.

This particular page of Swedish embroidery patterns comes from a 1953 American Thread booklet called Pot Holders.

With these designs you simply follow the diagrams. Embroidery Cotton is used, the colors are listed, but you can choose your own combinations of colors.

There is a paragraph of General Directions for Swedish Embroidery, but using the links above to the previous posts will give you a more detailed How-To.

Below are the individual designs:

The two above seem to be the easiest, not having to deal with too many lines to follow. The next two are more intricate and require several colors, but they could be done in all one color and still make a great design for a towel, table runner or cloth.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS Fan Freebie!

Swedish Weaving Patterns - Vintage Crafts and More

The Swedish Weaving patterns I’m sharing today are from Modern Trends, a 1954 Coats & Clark booklet. It includes patterns for  Hairpin Lace, Crochet and these Swedish Weaving designs for an Apron, Towels and Place Mats.

The designs are all worked on Huck Toweling or Monk’s Aida Cloth.

To embroidery the designs, skeins of Six Strand Embroidery Floss or Pearl Cotton can be used with good results.

Most huck towels have vertical loops on one side and horizontal loops on the other; each set of directions states on which side the design is to be worked.

Cut threads into 30-inch lengths. When beginning weaving, leave 3 inches of thread free. When weaving is completed weave back through design for 1 inch, or equivalent. Finish off 3-inch length in same manner.

When starting new thread in center of row, begin weaving 1 inch before end of previous thread. When article has been completed, press well on wrong side.
