|Materials: 24cm (or larger) circumference mari, wrapped in
Pearl Cotton #5 in white and red
Marking thread is fine silver metallic.
Prepare a Simple 24
division with fine silver thread.
1. Put a pin on a division line 1/4" - 3/8" down from the pole.
Put another pin on the same division line the same distance from
the opposite pole. These are the top and bottom of the diamond.
2. Put 2 pins on the equator line, each on the 4th division line
on either side of the top-bottom line. (webmaster's note,
corrected via TalkTemari 5/15/05) - you will be stitching large diamond
shapes, using the previous placed pins as the top and bottom of the
diamonds; the side "corners" will be on the equator, on the "first" and
3. Start stitching at the left equator pin. Stitch at each pin
completing the diamond. On completing the last stitch, travel
under the mari wrap to the next division line at the obi. There is
no need to place any pins at the remaining equator lines because the
crossed division/equator lines hold the stitches firmly.
4 Repeat, moving left each time and soon you'll see that the
diamonds begin to complete interweaving at the equator, forming the
center of the small diamonds
on the equator line. Continue until all division lines have been
linked with diamond shapes. If you have put pins at all the pole
points, you can remove them now, but keep the top/bottom pins in place
to give you a clue about where the starting point is.
5. Stitch the remaining 3 rounds as you did the first complete
