A pattern darning chart

This embroidered textile is linen embroidered with blue cotton. It is 31 x 14.5 cm. The main design is similar to the pattern darning sampler from the post “A Mamluk pattern darning sampler”, specifically pattern 1. It is larger and more complete. There are two narrow bands that highlight the main band, one with an s shape and the other is reversed, with a z shape. The textile is in the Ashmolean Museum.
