Each letter is an unusual satin stitch ladderback design, and is contained within a simple stylized satin stitch vine "crest", with a ring embellishment as an accent at the bottom. The letters would be interesting used alone. You can either delete the vine and ring (which sew first) in your embroidery software program, or skip past Color 1 and Color 2 on the machine.

This architectural monogram style is european in origin. The wide satin stitch letters feature a split satin-stitch fill pattern, with delicate satin-stitch scrollwork in the background, giving an elaborate shadow effect. The letters can easily be used alone by skipping the first color scrollwork.
This monogram style is taken from one of the vintage monogrammed hankies in our Monogram Museum collection. The rounded satin stitch letters with curling Romanesque details are surrounded by an intricate flower and vine border, done in satin stitch, with a bow at the bottom. Although done as a two color design, this monogram looks wonderful when sewn white-on-white in all one color. The letters can be used alone by skipping over the border design.
This monogram style is digitized from 1940s artwork. The large letters are done as outlines in satin stitch with open centers between border elements, and each letter sits in the center with a two color rectangular satin stitch frame surrounding it. The smaller letters are simpler in style, and are intended for use in creating a three letter monogram by merging the appropriate letter on the left and right.
In addition to the three-letter combination shown, there are a multitude of possibilities: Want a single initial with frame? (use only the large letter) Want everything as a single color? (use the same thread for all three design colors). Want only the larger open letter without the frame? (skip color 1 and color 2 on your machine.) Want the larger open letter with flanking letters, but no frame? (merge the flanking letters on either side, then delete colors 1 and 2 in your software). You get the idea - simple manipulations create very different visual results.
The artwork for this monogram style is from a French publication for hand embroiderers from 1910. A leaf and vine motif surrounds the letters, accented with circular dots between the upper and lower garland sections. All the elements, including the very thin details are digitized in satin stitch.
We have done this monogram style in three colors, but a single color monogram is easily sewn by using only one thread color. The color changes also make it easy to separate the design into parts - the letters can be used alone by skipping over the border design.
