The filling pattern shown here is a practice exercise only. You can see it used in a shape at the end of this article.
First, establish an openwork grid with an intersection of four threads in the center by cutting 2, leaving 4 (!) both vertically and horizontally.
Work Double Back stitches in eight steps as establishes in the article Filling Pattern – No. 559 (here shown without turning the piece).
Continue working Double Back stitches in the established way covering each intersection square to fil the entire shape.
From the front the pattern looks like this:
This pattern is similar to the “Filling Pattern – No. 469 “, but here the stitches of the working threads are not pulled together in the end.
As a result, the intersection squares remain relatively flat
Filling Pattern – No. 560 is also embroidered in an elaborate border of a parade cushion from 1821.
