Part 3 filling stitches holly berry ornament
Some of the stitches are similar or the same as ones I have already show so in those cases there will be less photos or none will be show but it will reference you to a previous post . As you can go through the other tutorials to glean that information.
Filler stitches #9 Leaf center ( please review stitches in Part 1)
This is set up the same way as filler #1.
When you get to the last set of warp threads use each individual string to weave teh rest of the way to the top
Filler Double bar review
Place a double bar up the center of the leaf refer back to filling stitches part 2 as to how to do this.
Filler stitches #10
Follow the pattern covering each line once the second time you go over the patterns wind the two threads together by passing the needle over and around the first thread.
When you get to a junction weave around the 4 central spokes do not pull to tight or it will distort your circles.
Then continue with the weaving around the first laid thread
In part 2 you learned about wrapping bars and double bars and wheat ear filling stitch review that before doing this.
Work this as you did for the wheat ear stitch doing a double bar and adding parts as you go up.
Do a few passes of the double bar then too each side of the central vain make a loop stitch connected to the cord around the leaf ending back at the central vain. These will pull up a little so give a little extra thread so when you go back to weaving the double vain it will sit where it should and not pull all the stitches upward towards the other end of the leaf
This is what it should look like after you have made the center vein and the side veins.
I wanted my the veins of the leaves to be more prominent that just two threads wrapped you are welcome to do 1, 2 , 3, or 4 much more than that is too much
so here you see me adding 2 more threads to get to 4 before I wrap mine
Remove from pattern and then remove basting threads.
