The Hardanger stitch also called Norwegian stitch, is one of those points that creates an ancient and elegant embroidery and often is recreated on linen or cotton tissue.

For this step you'll have to get the following materials:

  • a white cotton or white linen,
  • a frame,
  • a pair of scissors,
  • an embroidery needle.
