Cross stitch pattern charts: Bayeux Embroidery

The Bayeux Tapestry is immense (64 metres) and choosing just a few scenes was not easy. There had to be boats, horses and some of the main characters. There also needed to be a map showing some of the places mentioned in the tapestry tale. As for the pompoms, they were added to show the seven colours used in the original tapestry. All is explained in detail on the back of the pattern chart. This spectacular pattern chart and all the ensuing smaller projects were designed by Frederique Crestin-Billet. They were inspired by the famous Bayeux Tapestry which is, in fact, not a tapestry but embroidery, using stem stitch, straight stitch and couching stitch. To make it accessible to all, cross stitch was chosen.
