No. 450
category: Limet-Filling pattern
stitches used: Fours blocks of Satin stitches over one square (3 threads) in the width and 4 squares (12 threads) in the height as well as Rose stitches
longitudinal axis: withdrawn thread line

It is expedient to begin thread withdrawal for the Limet grid in the prepared tulip design here :
Fadenauszug | withdrawing threads First, in the established Limet grid, work Satin stitches as blocks of four bars consisting of 12 stitches (4 squares) over one square (3 threads). Start at the top middle – so that the pattern can fully develop in the upper part of the motif – working the blocks in a stair-step manner, changing the direction of the stitches with each block.
4-er Wickelstichbloecke | fours blocks of Satin stitchesWork the blocks like a checkerboard all over the shape.
4-er Wickelstichblöcke, schachbrettartig | blocks like a checkerboard
5 Rosenstiche je freies Quadrat | 5 Rose stitches in each squareWork five Rose stitches in each of the remaining squares.
fertiges Muster | finished patternWashed, starched and ironed the pattern gets its full charm. This example was worked on 13.5 /cm thread-count linen. For the Satin stitches Coton à broder No. 20 was used and for the Rose stitches Coton à broder No. 25.
