Huck embroidery, sometimes called huck weaving or Swedish weaving, is a form of embroidery that blends a bit of surface embroidery with weaving. Its name comes from huck cloth, which is the most common material used for this style, and as its alternate name suggests, huck embroidery originated in Sweden. It is most often seen on table linens and towels.
Huck embroidery needles have a blunt and angled end, which makes it simple to scoop the needle under the floating threads. These needles are also longer, so you can work a long area with a single pass.
Several types of fabric work for huck embroidery, but each will work a little differently and the results may vary.
Typically used for counted cross-stitch and blackwork, Aida fabric also works for huck embroidery. As you work, stitch through the front floats only.
