Huck embroidary border

Huck embroidary is also knownSwedish weaving  .  It was used in the 1940s to decorate the borders of Huck towels with embroidery floss.  Today it is used for afghans, placemats, table runners, pillows, and more.  Swedish weaving can be done on a variety of even-weave fabrics including huck toweling, monk’s cloth, and Aida cloth.  Swedish weaving is unique in that  only work on the front side of the fabric and the stitching does not show on the back.  Traditional Swedish weaving designs are usually mirror images
I finished the border design of the Huck Towel. The design looks like this.
