Hardanger embroidery
is a form of embroidery worked in white yarn on a colored Hardanger cloth, using drawn thread work.

It is a form of counted-thread embroidery

It originates from the Hardanger district in Western Norway.

Amongst the special techniques used are:

  • cording: overcasting over several threads to make a cord
  • woven bars: weaving the needle over and under three threads until they are completely covered.
  • picot: twisting the thread once round the needle before inserting the needle.
  • four sided stitch: forming adjoining squares.
