This book adds something new, fresh and extremely stylish to the needlepoint repertoire. It introduces the author's method of working directly from chartered design onto an unmarked canvas, and gives completely worked-out, large-scale graphs for 24 Orientally inspired designs which, with clear directions, even an unexperienced needlepointer can easily follow. Most of the graphs show a central motif and a border. By interchanging these, there are over 90 possible designs for pillows, rugs, Parsons tables and small accessories.
