Description

This listing is for a PDF pattern, instantly downloadable after purchase, so you can start stitching right away!

Recently a dear friend asked whether I had any patterns with greyhounds or Celtic borders. I liked the idea, so I created this sampler pattern as a Christmas gift for her. It features several Celtic running knot patterns, as well as a little scene of a greyhound chasing a hare through the woods. The line "Let the hound the hare go chase" is from 'Aglaia: A Pastoral', by Nicholas Breton, written in the early 17th century. I personalised this sampler with my friend's initials and the year 2014 in Latin numerals, but you can change it with your name, initials and year in whatever way you prefer! As is usual with old samplers, the J and U are missing from this sampler, and can be substituted with both I and V respectively.

The British isles and the Celts have a long history with the greyhound, which continues up to this day. Dog racing is still popular, but unfortunately has a darker side. I would like to take this opportunity to ask you to have a look at Greyhound Rescue West of England (http://www.grwe.com). It is the leading independent charity operating in the field of rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of unwanted, abused or abandoned greyhounds and lurchers. 25% of the money brought in by this pattern is being donated to the GRWE. Thank you for your support!

This pattern is 179 stitches high and 117 stitches wide. Stitched on 32 count belfast linen (available in my shop), this pattern would measure approximately 11 1⁄4 by 7 3⁄8 inches (28.5 by 18.5).

Excellent pattern and amazing followup with the artist. I suggest you check out his hand dyed wool as well to complete your stitching.

Love this pattern. Customized the lettered sections with my retired racer's ear tattoos.

I am absolutely enthralled by the designs Jacob de Graaf offers! I had a question about this chart and did not really expect a same-day answer, since we're on opposite sides of the Atlantic. But he came back just a couple of hours later with a very gracious and informative reply. I will definitely be ordering more charts from Modern Folk Embroidery, and perhaps some wool as well.
