Somehow the intricate looking patterns in blackwork kits seem to call out to be used for a knight in shining armour.
This jousting knight astride his steed gives the opportunity to stitch the horse's finery as well. A touch of gold on his shield and the lining of the horse's garment adds sparkle. Gold beads decorate the centre of each "flower" on the horse's caparison or ornamental cloth.
Simple enough for a beginner this medieval lady, Gwendoline, uses just black and gold threads. The pattern used for her dress is the same as the one used in the blackwork pears lesson.
