Pattern: More Russian folk embroidery (#7)
Based on images from the NYPL Digital Gallery:
Source: Obraztsy starinnago narodnoe uzornago shit'ia i kruzhev iz kollektsii K. Dalmatova.

Kontsy ot polotenets beloi s krasnoi vystrochki Tverskoi gubernii.
[Towel end from Tver province embroidered in red hemstitch.] (1893-94)
The sample is done in cross stitch. The original was probably filet lace or something like it--It's difficult to tell from the grayscale image. Both positive and negative options are available on the chart.
