All the Hardanger I've done has been from my own designs, except for a few that are adaptations of the designs of others (none are exact copies).
My Small Practice Designs
I made a large number of small ones because I wanted to practice all the different shapes of kloster blocks, sizes and shapes of motifs, and all the different lace fillings that I could find. Some of these are available as patterns for sale. All on this page made by me. Patterns are available for sale.
H2 H120 H15
H3 H3a H5
H147 H10 H110 H76
Both H 11 H124 H111
All H7. The 1st is too plain, so I figured out a way to dress it up for the 2nd and 3rd. The 2nd is worked according to the 7 stitches over 6 threads system. It is just a matter of interpreting my diagram differently. The photo doesn't show it, but the 2nd is larger because each kloster block covers 6 x 6 fabric threads: the whole design just gets larger.
|5 over 4||7 over 6||14 count Aida. All H8|
|In the 3 pieces above you can see how certain motifs can be treated differently, according to the personal taste of the stitcher. The eyelets can be worked between the buttonholed edge and the diagonal row of kloster blocks nearest the edge, as in the center example. Or the eyelets can be worked between 2 diagonal rows of kloster blocks, as in the left piece. Or eyelets can be dispensed with entirely, and the centers of the little 4 block units can be cut out and left empty, as in the right example.|
5 over 4 7 over 6 H9
H12 H13 H84
All H25 The last has more space between the cable stitch and the 4 sided stitch.
H42 H42a H32 H27
H23 H43 These are the same design: H23 for a 12 thread kloster unit and H43 for a 20 thread kloster unit.

|Adaptations from designs of others: these adaptations are not exact copies, but have changes, subtractions or additions from the originals.|
|Both H19. Notice small differences in interpretation.||H114|
|H19 and H19a are adaptations of a layout from the new Anchor Hardanger book. In both the original had a 16 thread block as the basic unit; I reduced it to a 12 thread block.|
|Both H22 This is an adaptation of a layout from the new Anchor Hardanger book.|
