Vetty Creations office partial closure: I have been unwell since mid November 2023. Orders are going out, though may be delayed when I'm having a really bad day/days. I respond to enquiries when I am able to. I apologise for this. It’s not what I want either.

Anniken Hardanger runner

Designed by Yvette Stanton

This beautiful Hardanger whitework runner is based on traditional-style Hardanger designs. Traditionally, Hardangersøm (or embroidery from Hardanger) was worked in white thread on white linen. It was worked in long bands, and did not use the buttonhole edge that is so frequently seen on contemporary Hardanger.

The stitches used in this project are traditional Hardanger stitches. Drawn thread bands were often used along the edges of Hardanger, and eyelet clusters were also common. The other stitches (satin stitch, four-sided stitch, needleweaving and cable stitch) remain common in contemporary Hardanger embroidery.

This pattern features detailed step-by-step instructions, with accompanying photographs.
