6 Mentai: Increasing the
8-point centers to 16 points (C8)
This marking maintains the 6
centers of an 8-Combination division, but increases the centers to 16
points from 8. The 12 diamonds from the 8-Combination will be sub-marked
into narrower faces.
Begin by marking an 8
using regular marking thread.
|After completing the 8 Combination division, locate the 4
point centers in the middle of the diamonds. Stitch a line
around the mari as shown in photo to the left, where A-X = X-B
(1/2 of the short leg of the diamond). Repeat on opposite side
of the diamond.
|Continue to work in all diamonds of the C8 Division. Tack
intersections to maintain accuracy.
