Swedish weaving is also known as huck embroidery. It was used in the 1940s to decorate the borders of huck towels with embroidery floss. Today, it is also used for afghans, placemats, table runners, pillows, and more. Swedish weaving can be done on a variety of even-weave fabrics including huck toweling, monk's cloth, and aida cloth. Swedish weaving is unique in that you only work on the front side of the fabric and stitching does not show on the back. Traditional Swedish weaving designs are usually mirror images.
