Marking thread in silver metallic

Prepare an 8-Combination Division in silver metallic

Begin stitching the mitsubane kikkou / tri-wings. Use turquoise and stitch three rounds as a center. Then two rounds in the same color A-B-C-D-E-F-A. Stretch the points (B, D, F) to the other side of the marking thread. Change color to pink and stitch two rounds and then two more rounds of turquoise. Stitch the rest of the tri-wings and interlock the points of adjacent wings nejiri style. Let the thread go over the other tri-wing, stitch round the marking thread, and then under the other tri-wing.

Choose six colors for the spirals (three color-pair): Dark green/Light pink; Burgundy/Light green; Green/Blue. You will use two threads of one color and one thread of the other. 1 and 3 are the same color in the diagram. Begin with thread 1 and stitch three rounds. Insert thread 2 and stitch one round, with thread 1 following. Then insert thread 3. Stitch until the area is almost filled, then finish thread 2. End
the spiral with three rounds of the color used for 1 and 3. Add two rounds of silver metallic. Stitch the opposite center in the same way but change the colors so that the color used for thread 1 and 3 will be used as thread 2 instead. Stitch the other center pairs in the same way.
