|Intermediate design; personal composition. Originally posted in 2011; contributed by Ginny T.|
|Materials: 23 cm circum mari, wrapped in whjite
Pearl Crown Rayon or Kyo in black, yellow and red
Marking thread in black
Prepare an 8-Combination Division
|This is 2 layer design, the first being kousa-style, the
second a kiku motif worked in uwagake chidori kagari. Locate
Diamond ABCD. The starting corners are placed 1/2 distance from
the 4pt diamond center to the 8pt center. With black (stitching
thread) work 1 round, and repeat in each of the remaining 11
diamonds around the mari. Locate Triangle EFG: Points E, F
and G are the same distance from the 8pt center as Points A and
C (used in the diamond); Work 1 round in black, being sure to
overlap the thread over the corners B and D of the diamonds.
Repeat in the 7 remaining triangles around the mari. Repeat the
cycle of 1 row on all diamonds and then 1 row on all triangles
with red, and then 1 row with yellow. Repeat the color sequence
2 times, for a total of 9 rows
|The second layer of the design is worked on each of the 8
point centers. A star motif using uwagake
chidori kagari is stitched. Place the inner/center
stitches of the uwagake very close to the 8pt center; the outer
points are placed just under and inside the threads of the
diamonds and triangles, as shown in the diagram. Work 1 round of
yellow, 1 of red, and 1 of black.
With red, stitch short matsuba kagari over each of the 6pt and 4pt intersections of the marking as embellishing to complete the design as shown in blue on the diagram.
