Intermediate design; interpreted design.  Contributed by Karen C.
Materials: 25 cm circum mari, wrapped in purple

Pearl Cotton #5 in  white, pale purple, light purple, medium purple, and dark

Marking thread in fine metallic silver

Prepare a 10-Combination Division

Locate the points half-way into the adjacent pentagon around each 10-pt center. With royal purple, stitch 1 round of pentagon around  first 10 pt center.  Design is nejiri style so be sure to follow interwoven sequence as you move around the mari. Notice the under-over pattern around the 6pt centers where the pentagon motifs overlap with each other. At each center, be sure the ‘uphill’ path is on top and the ‘downhill’ path passes under any other rows (see diagram). Following the interlocking pattern, stitch 1 round on each pentagon using white, 1
round with pale purple, 1 round with light purple, and 1 round with medium purple.
