|Accomplished intermediate design; original composition design focusing on integrating various overlapping forms. Contributed by Shelley S.|
|Materials: 25 cm circum mari, wrapped in black
Stranded floss in light, medium and dark green, white, purple, light, medium and dark pink, and peach embroidery floss; fine gold thread.
Marking thread: fine gold metallic
Prepare a 10-Combination Division
|Add extra jiwari using fine gold metallic, as shown in diagram
to the left: first an offset pentagon as shown in red, and then
the green, which will be offset to the red but centered to the
original C10 lines.
|The green framing shapes start with 2 threads of pale green embroidery thread. Start the stitch ¼ up from a pentagon center (1) then to the inside offset line (2) keep the line parallel to the diagonal spoke. Take a stitch then go to a point 1/3 from the center point where 2 of the first offset lines cross (3). Then run the stitch just beyond the center of the triangle space (4), then back to a point 1/3 from the edge the first offset line on the next pentagon (5), then to a point ¼ in from the edge of the second offset line (6) and back to a point ¼ up from the pentagon center (7). Repeat the form in reverse following #8 – #12 and back to #1. Repeat with 2 threads of medium and dark green to finish. Repeat with the other 4 sides of the first pentagon, then the rest of the pentagons.|
|In pentagon 1, in the first petal shape, use a single thread of purple, start at the bottom and stitch 7 kiku stitches in a fan shape overlapping the stitches at the bottom. Repeat to complete the pentagon. In the 5 adjacent pentagons use the same fan kiku pattern and stitch white, pale pink, medium pink, dark pink and peach flower petals. Repeat at the South pole pentagons.|
