stitches used: Rose stitches and Satin stitches
longitudinal axis: three-thread bundle (in other shapes/motifs: center = square)

If one has another design to be filled, an octagon should be centered. For example, in a circle one can start the grid as follows:
Establish the Limet grid (cut 1, leave 3) so that in the center there is a square.

In this established grid (created by the diagonally worked Rose stitches), Satin stitches are worked in vertical rows.

Always blocks of 3 – 9 – 3 Satin stitches are places in each octagon.

Washed, starched and ironed the pattern gets its full charm.
This example was worked on 17/cm thread-count old handwoven linen with Coton à broder No. 20.
