Stitching threads: Pearl Cotton #5 in red, yellow, green, blue, purple, black
Marking thread in fine metallic silver
Prepare a 10-Combination Division
|Add extra marking lines as shown by dotted lines in diagram to
the left. The "triwing pinwheels" are centered at corners of
pentagons formed by C10 lines. Each pentagon has a different
color pinwheel at each corner; there will be 4 pinwheels of each
color. Work all pinwheels of one color before moving on to next.
Repeat the color sequence the same for each layer. Stitches at
bends in pinwheels should alternate colors.
|Stitching sequence is indicated in the diagram to the left. Stitches 3,7, & 11 are halfway between corner and pole. All other stitches start close to "turning points" and move outward with each row. Center hexagons of pinwheels should be solid|
|Work four rounds on each pinwheel in color, then one final row
in black. The points of the pinwheels should reach to the poles.
Embellish with long stitches of silver thread, shown as light blue in the diagram, from pole to inside edges of pinwheels.
