Persian Garden


A Torchon Mat

SKU: 05-DG-0039 Category: Tags: ,


Persian Garden is the seventh in the Garden Collection of Torchon mats. It contains two different Rosegrounds, a variety of Spiders, Cloth Stitch Diamonds, Triangular Ground and Honeycomb Ground. Inspiration for the design came from my research into Persian carpets and architecture. The carpets often represent a garden. In Islamic architecture, decorative tiles are used to great effect on walls and floors. There are usually fountains and/or a pool somewhere in the courtyard garden, often surrounded by an octagon shaped border/wall. This is a design I have been thinking about for some years. The technical challenge of having vertical trails and a successful Octagon shape in Torchon lace, took some time to resolve. Please be aware that it is NOT for the beginner. The completed design is approximately 24 x 18cm (9.5 x 7 inches).

Requirements: 44 pairs of Aurifil Mako 50 plus 3 Gimp pairs of  Venus 70 or similar.
