Prepare a 10-Combination Division; increase to 92 tamentai.

The pattern is worked in 4 units of three adjacent pentagons from the original C10 marking as shown in the diagram to the left. Keep stitching order and color placement correct by assigning each unit a letter, and each color a number as shown below:

Round 1 outlines each unit, following stitches 1 - 42 as shown in diagram to the left. 
Stitches 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 31, 33, 35, 37, 30, 41 are a modified uwagake technique. Work outward on the same horizontal line, alternating stitches from adjacent unit (diagram to left). Remaining stitches are worked in Chidori Kagari.
Rounds 2 & 3 are Uwagake Chidori Kagari centered around the poles of the C10 in each unit (diagram to the left). Work uwagake as close to poles as possible; chidori kagari are positioned as illustrated in diagram. Round 2 anchors in the hexagon at the center of each of the units. Round 3 uses alternate lines around the poles. Stitch 4 rows of rounds 1, 2, & 3 in kousa style, using consistent order and color placement (refer to color chart above).
Round 4 - stitch 3 diamonds in each unit as shown in diagram to the left, interlocking with rounds 1 & 3. Refer to color chart for correct color placement. Stitch 4 rows of chidori kagari.  Round 5 - stitch hexagon in center of each unit interlocking where indicated with rounds 2 & 4. Stitch 4 rows of chidori kagari. Embellish the diamond and hexagon centers (as indicated in yellow in diagram to the left) with the same thin metallic used for the jiwari.
