About Folkology patterns

Our charts are delivered in PDF format, formatted for printing on A4 paper on your own printer. In addition to the chart, you will receive a detailed fabric and floss shopping list. Our handy shopping list outlines the amount of fabric (for different fabric counts) and thread needed to make the design.

Colors are indicated with easy-to-distinguish symbols, and color codes are provided for both DMC and Anchor threads. To accommodate our international stitchers, our charts and designs contain instructions in English and French.


A true gem, this beautiful pattern originates from the 18th century, when it was used as a weaving pattern. Today, it would be perfect as a card design or as a smaller linen decoration. Napkins and clothing would look particularly stunning embellished with this design. Choose your favorite color: blue, deep red or black.
