Metallic marking thread in gold
Prepare a Simple 32 division
|This is a standard application of Amime Kagari.
Begin about .75 cm from the pole. With lightest shade of pink,
work points A-P in chidori
kagari one row around the ball back to starting point.
Select the next darker shade of thread, and enter it to begin in
the downward notch of one of the chidori from Row 1, work
another round of chidori kagari (points a-p) "opposite in zigs"
to the prior, with the uppermost stitch of the row you are
working being taken just over into the notch of the previous
row. End off at home where you began the row. Select the next
color or shade - repeat the A-P round, and so forth. Repeat the
alternating chidori kagari rounds going from darkest pink to
lightest, then use lightest green to the darkest.
Work maki kagari for wrapped obi in white. Add obi kagari over the maki kagari.
