|Materials: 25 cm circum mari, wrapped in dark blue
Pearl Cotton #5 in white, yellow, gold, dark blue (same as mari wrap), black; thin yellow thread
Marking thread: thin green thread
Prepare an 10-Combination Division
In each marked pentagon, with pearl cotton stitch a solid pentagon using 3 rows of white and 4 rows of yellow.
Run a single line of gold pearl cotton, following the sides of the solid pentagons from step 1. This line runs between the pentagons to create a web that results in a series of star shapes within each face of the C10, as in the orange lines in the diagram at the left. At the North Pole create a gold and blue spiral within each of the 5 hexagon shapes created by step #2 (see light blue area in diagram). Repeat at South Pole.
|At the equator line, with North facing up, follow the yellow web lines, stitch 3 rows of black Pearl #5 along the bottom angle of the pentagons that frame the north spirals up to the bottom corner of the spirals. Finish with a row of yellow. See the second photo at left to see the result. Repeat at South Pole.|
|In the remaining pentagon spaces along the obi line use yellow thread to sub-divide the 6 triangles. Then using a single yellow thread stitch a “V” shape between each marking line to create a maple leaf. Stitch a yellow line on all 12 lines of each leaf. The detail diagram shows the intent and the photo shows the result. Repeat for all 10 pentagons.|
