To celebrate the Feast of Saint Cuthbert, around the 20th March, we are showing two pieces of work in the latest RSN Durham news bulletin, by past Royal School of Needlework students.

DMC Col. 680 and one strand of DMC Col. 3828

|both wings worked in unison|
I worked both wings side by side in two strands of DMC Col.680, to keep them equal and balanced. I worked 7 rows on each side starting with 3-4 stitches, and gradually increasing to 8-9 stitches. It all depends on your tension, but my tip is, do not make your needlelace too tight.
