Patterns & Instructions

Patterns and instructions for arts and crafts from and inspired by the Middle East.

Free Islamic Cross Stitch star[offsite link]
A large selection of free Islamic and Middle Eastern Cross Stitch pattern as well as links to a number of other excellent related sites.

Hamsa Embroidery Pattern star[offsite link]
A pattern for a hand embroidered Hamsa (Middle Eastern eye-in-hand protective symbol) from my embroidery site www.orangerugyarn.com

Islamic and Arabic Cross Stitch star[offsite link]
Beautiful free cross stitch patterns, mainly Arabic calligraphy.

Jerusalem Triptych star[offsite link]
Three scenes of Jerusalem in blackwork embroidery from Englandīs Classic Stitches magazine. Although Iīve found no historical references blackwork in the Middle East, European blackwork patterns show a strong influenced from Middle Eastern and Moorish art and architecture. Like many Classic Stitches patterns, viewing this pattern requires a free account, but if you are a needleworker of any sort, it is well worth it.

Magic of Persian - a needlepoint eyeglass case star[offsite link]
A needlepoint eyeglass case pattern from Britainīs Classic Stitches magazine based on a motif from a Northern Persian rug. Like many Classic Stitches patterns, viewing this pattern requires a free account, but if you are a needleworker of any sort, it is well worth it.
