The Bathing Pool



This little hoop – just 4” in diameter – is all about the bather’s hair. Her shoulders and costume are worked in satin stitch, whilst the bubbles surrounding her are different sizes of French knot. Her hair really is her crowning glory though, a great chestnut brown mass piled up on top of her head.
I chose to stitch my bather on a lovely turquoise blue linen, reminiscent of Mediterranean waters, but like her hair, skin and costume colours, your own colour choices are entirely up to you.

Please note, this listing is for the pattern to stitch your own bather and not the finished hoop.  The pattern contains full stitching details with extra photos, hints and tips to help you work the hair.
