Berlin Woolwork Needlepoint Chart – Coleus


This Berlin Woolwork chart is a professionally-made, color, digital copy on high-quality photographic paper taken from an original, handpainted Berlin Woolwork chart in our collection. The original came from a large group of antique charts destined for a textiles museum in New England. These charts were popular from 1850 through the 1930’s, and they are beautiful in their own right. They do require some interpretation because the tiny, handpainted squares are not as precisely painted as the stitch-painted canvases or computer-generated charts we see today. All the more opportunity to create a unique work of art! The pattern size is 4 1/4″ by 17″ (does not include borders).

This copy of an original Coleus Berlin Woolwork chart from our collection can be used in many ways! I have begun working it in needlepoint on two different sizes of canvas. That’s all it takes to change the scale of your project. It was simple to repeat different sections, for a longer piece, also.

It would be fun to isolate the different leaves  so they could be rearranged or combined with other patterns for completely unique results. Cross stitchers will love the complexity of this pattern, and it would be lovely worked on a fine gauge linen.  It is also a wonderful example of a beautiful color palette that could inspire an entirely original work of art.
