Red Monochrome Shaped Coif

Today's picture is another shaped coif, this time with a red monochrome design. The base fabric is a cotton/linen blend, and the design was worked in stem stitch in DMC cotton floss. The design is one of my favourites, and one that crops up again and again in sixteenth century pattern books, including Modelbuch Aller Art.

I worked a simple needle lace around the front edge of the coif. Thankyou to Heather for the hand made lucet cords.

My previous post on my Elizabethan red striped coif has much more information about Elizabethan coif use, decoration and construction.
