This groovy Heart pattern was adapted from one of my vintage Bargello pattern books and the colours were inspired by a set of vintage 1970s curtains I used to own.
This PDF pattern will provide you with all the instructions required to create a finished Canvas in this Heart Pattern that will measure approx 41cm length x 41cm height.
THE PDF PATTERN CONSISTS OF 3 SEPARATE FILES:
A4 pattern instructions (the pattern contains 13 pages and the instructions are written in English)
1 x A3 Colour Chart (detailing the pattern)
1 x A3 Colour photo of the finished canvas
The PDF pattern has been written using Appletons Tapestry Wool but this can be substituted for an alternative tapestry wool such as DMC or Anchor. (Please note that a larger quantity of the wool will be required if using DMC as there is only approx 8m in each skein compared to 10m in the Appletons and Anchor Tapestry Wool skein).
