Mix and match elements to create your own crewel pattern!

Trio is a crewel exercise incorporating a variety of choices in a design. The student is encouraged to “mix and match” elements to create their own pattern. Floral and foliage samples are given so that they may be moved about like dressing paper dolls. This allows the stitcher to pick and choose for an individual design. Stitching instructions for each motif are included.

The students are encouraged to make their own color choices. The use of a color wheel is recommended. You can find many color wheel images online. Some simple color choice options are listed on the next page. Be sure to read everything before purchasing the materials.
