Sardinian Knot Stitch Snowflake Ornament


This counted thread embroidery style, called Punt’e Nù (poont-ay-new) in Sardinian, comes from the town of Teulada (tay-oo-lah-dah), which is located along the southern coastline of the Italian island of Sardinia. It’s done exclusively in the town and not taught to outsiders often. The technique uses knots to create sets of traditional geometric designs in high relief on only the vertical threads of the fabric.
