Swedish Weaving Pattern Directory by Katherine Kennedy focuses on the basics and beyond of Swedish weaving, also known as "huck embroidery."

Packed with information, patterns, tips, and techniques, this book serves as both an introduction to Swedish weaving and as a pattern resource for over 50 huck embroidery projects.

The designs in huck embroidery include geometric fillings, undulating borders, and exciting liner paths that work up into simple or complex patterns, using basic embroidery materials like floss and perle cotton.

Featuring simple stitching techniques, this type of embroidery is accessible to beginners and beyond!

The book includes 50 patterns and variations. Each pattern includes the chart, photos of the stitched pattern, with materials lists and techniques used on the sample shown. There is plenty of opportunity for interpretation and experimentation with color, threads, and variations in patterns.
