Expand your needlepoint repertoire with the Roman Stripe pattern from Nuts About Needlepoint! This is a great stitch to know - you'll love the amazing projects you can complete!
- The design is stitched entirely in floss.
- Solid colors are best for this project, but very subtle hand-dyes, such as The Gentle Arts will also work.
- The design is very small on 18 mesh (1.25″ x 2.25″), so you might want to enlarge the design by substituting Scotch Stitches for the Tent Stitches and adding a wide border.
- Begin by picking your large triangle color. It can be black or another dark color. You will also need five colors for the stripes.
