Locate points ABCDE around center 1N. This is located ½ the distance between the pentagon edge of the 10-point center and the neighboring 10-point center. Using light yellow, stitch hoshi kagari / 5-pointed star following ABCDEA around the center marked 1N  Repeat  for center 1S using light yellow.
Using light green repeat for the centers marked 2N and 2S. Using light turquoise, repeat for the centers marked 3N and 3S.  Using light blue, repeat for the centers marked 4N and 4S. Using light purple, repeat for the centers marked 5N and 5S. Using light pink, repeat for the centers marked 6N and 6S. Repeat the cycle starting at 1N for a total of 9 rows on each center. Groom threads as needed to make lines straight and the woven areas symmetric.
