What is Blackwork?
While the technique began by primarily using black thread on light colored fabrics (hence the name), Blackwork is a marriage of embroidery and cross stitch and is often referred to as counted thread embroidery. Using a series of backstitches, you follow the pattern by counting just as you would a cross stitch pattern.
