Photo of the Week - Mayan Temple

By June 3, 2009

Follow me on:

Have I mentioned lately how much I love variegated flosses? The free Mayan Temple Pattern is shown here as stitched with two strands of Gloriana 12-ply silk floss. The yummy color is Cranberry (#062). It has a slight variation in color that gives a rich look to this simple design.

What a nice pattern! You’re right, the floss color sets it off perfectly.

The cranberry is a yummy color, but I can also see this pattern done in earth colors.

This subtle variegation is so much nicer than the early days of variegated floss and yarns! I love how it adds a subtle richness — Elegant!!

This looks so intricate and I love the colors!

It reminds me of the mandalas we made with yarn and Popsicle sticks in elementary school.
