Florentine embroidery design "plaiting"

design"plaiting"
design"plaiting"

In this design all stitches are worked over four threads. They are worked in groups of two stitches, which are two holes lower or two threads higher then the two stitches just made. One diagonal row exist always of eight groups of two stitches. This pattern is more difficult then for instance "zigzag" or "cathedral", because there are no continuing zigzag row of stitches in one color. Two colors are used each in four shades, blue and pink-red. The small squares between the skew quadrangles consist of four groups of two stitches in black.

Below there are two very clear working-drawings.
