Prepare a 10-Combination Division

In C10 there are 12 pentagons. In each pentagon there are 5 diamonds. In each diamond there are two right triangles – left oriented and right oriented (fig. to left).
Once you have located them begin to stitch uzumaki kagari as follows:  in left oriented triangles stitch counterclockwise direction and in right oriented triangles stitch clockwise direction (fig. to left). Always begin from the center of the pentagon against the right angle.

Pay extra attention on counting of threads (and rounds) in each triangle (fig. 3). For better result they must be equal on each triangle. For instance, on 30 cm. mari, with cotton pearl No. 8, there can be 4 to 5 rounds, depending on density of stitching.
