Large Star

The outline of the large star shows a double star. When stitching one example, I ignored the inside lines and worked filling pattern No. 540 over the entire shape.

This time I added additional marking lines inside the background points

and covered them with Wide Stem stitches (coton à broder No. 16).

A Limet grid with a square in the center

was established.

A variation of Honeycomb Darning stitches (worked around a center square) – Filling Pattern No. 551

was worked as the filling pattern.

This pattern develops its full appearance only after boiling, starching, and ironing.
