A diagonal embroidery with hooks

diagonalwithhooks This textile is an even weave linen, embroidered in dark blue cotton. It is 12.5 cm high and 11.5 cm wide and thought to have been made between the 10th and 15th centuries. It is currently in the Ashmolean Museum.

I have charted up the design, as well as attempt to embroider it. The chart is available for download in pdf format-

Let me know how it works out!

    Thank you Miriam for your wonderful charts! I used this one an one of your other ones on some linen for an underdress. Your charts were so easy to follow and I love how the embroidery came out!

    In case you are interested, here is the link to the project that used the embroidery.
