|Intermediate design; interpreted from various Japanese books. Originally posted in 2006; contributed by Shelley S.|
|Materials: 25 cm circum mari, wrapped in orange
Stranded floss in 3 shades of green, 6 shades from yellow to red
Marking thread in metallic gold
Prepare a 10-Combination Division marked with single strand of dk green floss
|Use 2 stands of
floss throughout. This is a two-layer design with the
green being the ground layer and the yellow/red being the top
layer. Each pattern is contained within its own pentagon. The
first layer creates the green star shape as shown in the
diagram. The stitch starts at a point 1/4 of the way up from the
center point along a diagonal line. The top of the stitch is at
the 1/2 point of the alternate lines; this is shown in dark
green on the diagram.
Using the dark green line in the diagram as a guide go around the pattern using uwagake chidori kagari. The first 3 rows use light green, then follow with 2 rows of the medium green and then 2 rows of the dark green. This pattern should end just at the marking line; you may need to adjust the number of rounds to accommodate the size of ball or the thickness of the thread.
|The second layer starts as close to
the center of the pentagon as possible and the stitch goes to
the outside of the first layer, this is shown with the red line
in the diagram. Using uwagake chidori kagari, stitch follow the
pattern shown with 3 rows of yellow and then 2 rows of each
successively darker color. The final color, red, has only one
row. The goal of this layer is to have the final row just reach
the corners. You may need to adjust layers to meet this
