Pattern: KILIM II

Pattern: KILIM II

Kilim II and NEW Kilim II Large Rectangle

 This pattern is loosely based on a rug found in the Ottoman rug collection in Transylvanian churches that date back to the 17th Century. The center “cloud” design is believed to have originated in the Far East, probably brought from Asia to Hungary by Magyars around the year 960. It is a beautiful historic piece of textile and a great pattern to stitch as an heirloom to pass on to future generations. The outer borders of traditional motifs have been added from other Kilims to convert the pattern from a large rug to a smaller pillow size 19×19″ (48x48cm), and a larger rectangle, size 26″ wide x 20″ high (66x51cm).

Like our other Kilim patterns, Kilim II is a lot of fun to stitch and while it is a bit more challenging and ideal for stitchers who get easily bored with repetitive small geometrics,  it can also be stitched by anyone with a little bit of experience because my instructions  in the kit include a separate chart for just the main outlined central design. As with all cross-point™ kits, not only does the kit include individual pattern instructions but also our cross-point Technique™ sheets as well as  large charts with colors and symbols. Also refer to About working on Jute on this blog.

KILIM II is available in two pillow sizes and nine color choices. KILIM II regular price is $119.00, Special Offer is $95.20; KILIM II Large Rectangle regular price is $159.00, Special Offer is $127.20. Add shipping cost $9.50 and $15.00 respectively. Please visit the cross-point™ Pattern page for Kilim II on the website to see all options including a listing of companion patterns in coordinated colors. KILIM II Large Rectangle is sized to fit USA Standard Bed Pillow. Patterns are available in custom colors and custom sizes.
