Florentine embroidery design "zigzag"

Florentine embroidery design "zigzag"
design "zigzag

This classical pattern is very simple to make. You start on the right or on the left with a row stitches, which are going up, then going down, up again etc until you arrive at the other site of the fabric. The are all in one color and the easiest way is to start with the darkest shade. All the other rows, above and below the first row are identical. All stitches are over 4 threads. One color has been used: pink-red, in four shades.

Below there are two very clear working-drawings.
