It is working!!!
For my first one, I am just using over dyed thread to make the pattern. A real one takes three threads of heavy wool on the needle. I am going with three threads of over dyed floss.
Basically, it is just tying larks head knots over two threads all the way across.
Here you see the first step. You go from the center out on the left hand side of the two threads.
Here is the second step. You go from the left to the middle under the second thread of the two and make sure to stay under the thread loop that you just made around the rod.
After each row you cut and trim the loops.
I am sure that someone somewhere is already doing this, but it is my first try.
Tessie is to blame. She wanted something comfy to wiggle her toes in... This should do it. Back to the needle and canvas.
See you tomorrow.
