|Materials: 24 cm circum mari, wrapped in red
Pearl Cotton #5 in green, white, and royal blue
Marking thread in metallic gold
Prepare an 8-Combination Division
|You have the 6 centers, you will also have 8 triangles: 4 from
one pole to the equator and 4 from the other pole to the
equator. Mark the 8 triangles, each one 1.5cm from the 3
corners. Stitch 8 rows of green in each triangle.
For the squares: measure 1.5 cm from the corners and stitch 8 rows of blue. Weave them over and under the green triangles as they come in this order:
The first 2 rows were under the 16 rows of green; next 2 rows are over 2 rows over the green, under 12 rows and over the last 2 rows of the green; the next 2 rows are 4 rows of green worked under 8 rows and over the last 4 rows of green. The next rows are over 6 rows of green and under 4 rows and over the last 6 rows of green.
With white, measure 1cm from the poles and other centers, and reverse the stitching sequence worked with the green: under 6 rows of green and over 4 rows of green and under the last 6 rows of green.. twice. Then, under 4 rows of green and over 8 rows of green and under the last 4 rows of green...twice. Then under 2 rows of green and over 10 rows of green and under the last 2 rows of green, twice. Lastly, over all the rows of green twice.
