For this Scandinavian Christmas Sampler I took inspiration from the simplistic and rather abstract patterns from the Scandinavian regions. The text Glædelig Jul is Danish and means “Merry Christmas”.
You can change the Danish wish to either Swedish and Norwegian (God Jul), Icelandic (Gleðileg jól), or Finnish (Hyvää Joulua). Simply use the texts provided at the end of this pattern to customise it. The pattern features a series of borders, snowflakes, trees and animals that could also be used on any other project.
Although I opted for a monochrome red sampler, you can choose any colour, or a mix of your favourite colours.
This sampler measures 277 crosses in height by 173 crosses in width. Stitched over two threads on 32 count linen, this sampler would measure approximately 17 3/8” by 10 7/8” (44 by 27.5 cm). Make sure to check out my shop to discover some high quality embroidery threads and fine linens.
