|The embroidery is done in 2 layers. First layer: Locate line

E above line AB and go to F under line AB using Chidori Kagari. Continue around the mari working
above the line and under the line. Work 3 rows. Do the same but now start at E under line AB.
Next one row in white metallic and two rows of light green. Repeat this on the line CD and the line ACBD.
|Second layer: Locate triangle 1, 2, 3. Start close to the
center with light peach working the hexagon of the Mitsubane
Kikkou Kagari design. Work 3 rows. Next work 2 rows with
the white metallic.
Work the outward points of the design with dark green. Start at 4 and follow the path as shown
in diagram 2 until you are back at 4. Next start at 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. Continue until you have two rounds of dark green all over. Do the same with two rounds of light green.
|Finish the ball by taking two tabane kagari stitches over the bundle of threads between the legs of the Mitsubane as shown in the photograph.|
