Moroccan Lanterns


Brighten your own embroidery collection with this course, in which you will stitch seven unique lanterns in blackwork. While the stitches used are relatively simple, backstitch or Holbein stitch, the challenge is in arranging the lanterns, and consistently stitching them with intricate, geometric patterns.
