This band sampler bell pull introduces the patterns and colours of Norwegian pattern darning, known as smøyg. With 10 different bands, the patterns are taken from historical examples of smøyg, from various regions and traditions across the south of Norway. Some bands use wool and others use silk. While traditional Norwegian pattern darning would have been worked on up to 55 count linen, this project uses 35 count linen.
Finished sampler approximately 60cm x 12cm.
