The fashion for Scandinavian influenced single colour cross stitch continues to spread like wildfire – and it’s easy to see why. Its simple charm fits right in with the vogue for vintage home styling, plus with only one thread colour to work with, it’s easy to finish a project in no time at all. This set of cross stitch patterns by Anette Eriksson look just perfect in kitchens, and our adorable recipe book cover features a sweet pair of feathered friends, plus some Scandinavian geometric motifs which are all highly versatile. Add them to the end of a runner, or pick just one to add a finishing touch to a napkin. There’s also a more ornate bird design which we’ve added to an eye-catching shelf edging, alternating the birds with buttons. Just so stylish!
