Prepare a Simple 12
division. This is a two layer design with the tsumu
being the first layer and the equator
the second. The spindles are created on every second line.
1. The starting point for the spindles is 2.5cm above
the equator on alternate lines. Continue the first line to a point 2.5
cm below the equator. The color pattern for the spindles are as follows:
Rows 1-2 White
Rows 3-4 Light yellow
Rows 5-6 Dark yellow
Rows 7-9 Pale orange
Rows 10-12 Medium orange
Rows 13-14 Red
Row 15 Black
The points of the spindles should meet at both the north and south
2. Starting at the equator wrap one band of black over
the spindles. Then using the red, dark orange, light orange, yellow and
white sequence of colors weave them over the spindles. The red thread
weaves under the black and over all the others to exit under the black.
The dark orange weaves under the black and red and over the others to
exit under the red and black. The sequence continues weaving under the
darker colors and over the lighter. This sequence is followed on both
sides of the equator.
3. The gold yarn is used to over wrap the 12 marking
lines as the final step.
