The embroidery starts with the hair. Because I want thick, coarse hair, it is worked with Slanting Wide Stem stitches (coton à broder No. 16). First, all strands up from the part point are worked.
Then additional strands are worked between. Next the facial outline,
the outlines of the hand and of the shoe, and the underlay for the stick were embroidered (all with coton à broder No.16).
The Chain stitches were covered with Satin stitches (2 strands of 6-ply stranded cotton). The shoulder of the outer coat was worked with Satin stitches (2 strands of 6-ply stranded cotton). All remaining outlines were embroidered with Slanting Wide Stem stitches (coton à broder No. 16).
Limet grids were established (staggered) in both the sleeve and the coat.
The coat got a filling pattern (coton à broder No.20) similar to filling pattern 469, but this time with Rose stitches between the Satin stitches instead of Double Back stitches.
The sleeve was embroidered with the pattern diagonal step over one plot (Wickelstiche page 22).
