Rosso Cardinale | 3D Embroidery on Wool: Wild Flowers

3D Embroidery on Wool: Wild Flowers

Sunday, November 19
Time: 9 – 12 h CEST
Place: Cotton Classroom 
Workshop facilitator: Rosso Cardinale
Language: English
Duration: 3 hours
Level: All levels
Places: 20


You will discover various embroidery stitches that can be used on wool. Dario will guide you through the different types of embroidery stitches on wool, talk about how to draw a project on the stabilizer and share tips and tricks for flawless embroidery.

In this workshop, we will work on a small sample. The project includes some of the major stitches, but focuses more on 3D stitches, such as 3D flowers. These types of flowers, which are used to create wonderful embroideries that stand out from the garment, can be worked both on the top of accessories and on garments.

At the end of this workshop you will have the technical knowledge you need to embroider your knitting fabrics.

Previous knowledge: No prior knowledge is required

 Required material:

  • Yarn: Any type of wool in fingering or mohair thickness, in any color. Some DK or worsted to create the 3D flowers. If you have worsted thread, bring it to class to embroider flowers and leaves.
  • Water soluble, washable embroidery stabilizer. You can find it on Amazon, e.g. New Brothread Wash Away Embroidery.
  • Embroidery hoop: Approximately 22 cm / 10 inches in diameter
  • Scissors.
  • Downloaded and printed template that you will find in the syllabus. We will send by email one month before the workshop.
  • Sharp needles for wool (make sure the wool you use goes through the eye)


Knit a swatch approximately 24×24 cm (10×10 inches) with DK yarn. Print and trace the template.

Included material: Sponsor’s gift
