Kerri of Roxy Floss Co has dyed a special floss colour for this chart called Vierlande. This floss can be found in both regular skein form and mini hank form. Please note that there may be additional processing time required for this floss and it may take your order up to 3 weeks to ship.

If you are stitching this chart 1 over 2, you will need two (2) regular skeins of Roxy Floss.

You can find the floss here: Roxy Floss Co Vierlande

Looking for linen? We recommend stitching this chart on Roxy Floss Co Panettone Linen. A wide eighth of linen, or a wide sixth of aida is plenty to complete this chart on all counts.

From the Designer:

Vierlande is a rural area just outside of Hamburg on the river Elbe. The name “Vierlande” literally translates as “four lands” and refers to the four parishes in it (Kirchwerder, Neuengamme, Altengamme and Curslack). The area has a rich cultural tradition of dress and folk art. Girls in this area would create stunning samplers, which in the 19th century were often fully worked with black thread on linen.

Some time ago, I was fortunate to get the opportunity to purchase a large Vierlande sampler (AKGIT 1833 - which was also charted by me - see the last page of this booklet). This sampler inspired me to design something in this beautiful pattern’s style. I took several liberties in my design but wanted the overall feel of the sampler to be in the spirit of traditional Vierlande samplers.

The design features a large tree of life at its centre, and surrounding it are (half ) medallions.
