|Materials: 24cm circumference mari
wrapped in white
Pearl Cotton #5 in maroon and green
Metallic gold thread
Prepare a 10-Combination division
|Use pins to divide the short legs of each pentagon into
(see red numbers – green and blue dots on figure)
|With maroon, bring your needle up at one of the first 1/3 pins
from the center of a pentagon.
(Green #1 in figure). Stitching only on the short leg-lines, create a right-handed spiral.
(26 stitches – follow green numbers)
The last stitch should be near the center of an adjoining pentagon along the same short-leg line 5 thirds distance from your fist stitch.
|Repeat this design for each pentagon around the ball; keeping
track of the order in which each pattern is stitched so you can
repeat it for each successive round.
Repeat with 1 round of green and 1 more round of maroon. (total 3 rounds)
