|Materials: 32cm circum mari, wrapped in white
Pearl Cotton #5 in blue and black
Marking thread in inconspicuous gauge, or invisible

|Pin the center of any pentagon. Five butterflies will be
stitched around this pin. Note how one wing is within the right
triangle of a flat side of the pentagon and extends into the
adjacent pentagon. When the ball is rotated 90 degrees to the
right, note that the second wing part is within the right
triangle of a flat side of the adjacent pentagon.
|Each butterfly is inside a diamond shape. Using double thread
in blue, work Matsuba
Kagari as shown in the diagram to the left. Keep stitches
just inside the outline of the diamond. Work seven
stitches for each wing as shown in the diagram. Repeat in each
triangle of the pentagon, and then in each pentagon of C10
|Butterfly bodies and antenna: Using black single thread, take three holding stitches (Tabane Kagari) over each of the matsuba stitch bundles. To complete, take long stitches of varying lengths to for a pair of antennae on each butterfly.|
