Filling Pattern – No. 469

No. 469
category: Limet-Filling pattern
stitches used: Satin stitches over 1 square in the width and 2 squares in the length and Double Back stitches
longitudinal axis: withdrawn thread line (in other shapes or motifs: center = intersection of withdrawn thread lines
name: Double Back stitch in a Satin stitch grid

It is expedient to begin thread withdrawal for the Limet grid in the prepared leaf design here:
01-469
First, in the established Limet grid, work a grid of Satin stitches. Start at the bottom-middle of the shape. Work, in a stair-step manner, Satin stitch bars over one square (3 threads) in the width and over 2 squares (6 stitches) in the length.
02-469
On the way back work the bars mirrored, so that squares of 6 X 6 thread-squares are established.
Work the grid all over the shape.
03-469
Then, from the back of the fabric, work Double Back stitches (a more detailled description is found in Openwork Pattern Samplers, pages 48 – 52) in the remaining squares. Therefore, starting at the top left, work 8 stitches following carefully the step-by-step pictures.

Now, bring the needle – from right to left – between the layers of the fabric and the stitches and pull the working threads of the stitches together with a Blanket stitch – thread under the needle. Do the same from top to bottom.

Travel to the starting point – top left – of the next Double Back stitch and repeat the steps. Picture 12 shows the result from the front of the fabric.

All remaining squares are filled in the same way. To get a uniform appearance, work the rows of Double Back stitches always from top to bottom.

Washed, starched and ironed the pattern gets its full charm.
This example was worked on 13.5/cm thread-count Weddigen linen with Coton à broder No. 20.
