Friday Freebie: Theodosius Hagia Sofia

Sometimes you can find the most amazing things carved in stone! This week's pattern is a prime example - it's a section of a carved archway that was in the Theodosius Hagia Sofia.

It was a bit of a challenge to take something curved and making into something straight but this is pretty close to the original I saw:


I was going to make it smaller but it insisted on becoming a border - you can stitch as much or as little as you like of it! If you don't like the greys then please do go ahead and change up the colours - perhaps consider using variegated threads or some shiny Kreinik!

You can find the pattern here.

See you next week for another freebie!
