Apple Tree was designed by Ingegerd Hyltén-Cavallius in 1962
Ingegerd started young at Nordiska of Gothenburg, and worked her whole life as a professional visual artist, furthering her education in textiles, graphics, watercolour and enamel.
Nordiska classic Apple Tree, which was also sold through The Needlewoman Shop in London in the 60's, is the second design by Ingegerd that we republish from the Nordiska archive.
With the reprinting on contemporary linen, we have chosen a fabric larger than the original. In the 60's, Sunflowers was a kit for a small cushion, only 12" x 12" cm.
The colour numbers on the chart are from the 1960's, so just add your yellows, orange and greens where you like them best. You will be able to follow the dark and light colours on the drawing, only a little improvisation is needed.
If you prefer to use your own threads, please find the Apple Tree panel without threads HERE
