|Start with working a Simple
6 but do not mark the equator. Pins will be placed on
alternate marking lines according to the following distance from
the poles: 1/6th of the circumference + 3/100ths of the
circumference (just as in a C10 the "couple of 100ths" is
required for things to work).
For example: The mari in the photo to the left measures 24.5cm circumference. 1/6th of this value = 4.1; 1/100 = 0.24 so 3 times this is 0.72 (round off to .7). Therefore, the pin distance is 4.1 + 0.7 = 4.8cm. On alternate lines, place a pin this distance from the pole. It results in six pins forming a wide zigzag around the center of the mari.
|Choose one of the "new" pins, and consider it to be a pole. In
this example it's Pin X. There will be 2 other pairs of pins
spaced opposite each other that will be used to add the next
threads. Measure off two wraps of thread, start at Pin X and add
a full circumference marking line using one of the two pairs of
pins. Return to Pin X and wrap again using the other pair. There
will now be six lines radiating out from Pin X (see photo
to the left).
|Measure off one more wrap of marking thread, and locate the remaining pin that has only two lines radiating from it. Complete the marking by wrapping the last marking line around from pin to pin on this pair (photo to left). Tack centers after grooming in place.|
|This marking results in 8 6-point faces and 6 8-point faces in addition to further smaller sections|
