Swedish Weaving on Aida Cloth instead of Huck Toweling

Do Swedish weaving with embroidery thread, a counted cross stitch needle and Aida cloth, and work on the top surface of the Aida cloth instead of piercing the fabric like we do for counted cross stitch.  You can select a pre-made design or make your own, once you understand the difference in the Aida cloth threads and the Huck toweling threads.  Here is the basic difference:

 You can do Swedish weaving on Aida the same way as working with Huck Toweling.  Just pick a design and get started.
