How to Work Forks of Stems and Tendrils

It is no problem to work a fork if the offshoot is at a right angel or nearly a right angel to the main stem, as the practicing project (1) shows. The more acute the angle, the more difficult it is to neatly work the fork.
abzweige1_1Tendrils simply added to the side of a stem do not look very nice,
abzweige1_2as the first three pictures show.
abzweige1_3In contrast, tendrils growing smoothly out of the stem are very attractive.
abzweige1_4I’d like to share a little tip for making forks that turn out well.
abzweige1_5The last stitch before reaching the fork is worked somewhat wider than the others. If you want to work an offshoot on the right, widen the stitch a small step to the right.
abzweige1_6After making one wider stitch, continue working in the established way.
abzweige1_7If you want to work an offshoot on the left, widen the stitch a small step to the left
abzweige1_8and then continue working in the established way.
abzweige1_9This creates a small space for adding an offshoot growing out of a line.
abzweige1_10The results are perfectly worked forks for stems
abzweige1_11and tendrils.
