Embroidery pattern made up out of so-called knot work. The main pattern has a circular shape and is presented in white on a dark ground. The knotted ropes or straps form circular patterns or wreaths, which can be seperated into two main tiers around the central motif which is a blank scalloped shield. On all four corners another, leaf-shaped ornament has been added which sticks out of the circle. The leaves are filled with more knot work in white on the dark ground while swirling straps in black surround them.
