Smøyg is pattern darning from Norway. Pattern darning is worked in running stitch, where the placement of the stitches is guided by counting the threads of the fabric.
The project is a small square panel (approx 13x13cm) which could be framed, mounted into a cushion, onto a box top or onto a bag.
All skill levels are welcome!
NB: In these uncertain times, we recommend you have an appropriate travel insurance policy.
Yvette Stanton is the author of ten instructional embroidery books, with most focusing on historical needlework, as well as two stitch dictionaries. Her book, "Smøyg: Pattern Darning from Norway" is the first book in any language, devoted to the subject. Yvette visited museums in Norway to view hundreds of historical examples of smøyg embroidery when researching her book.
