...let's get started!
LilyCompassI: Embroidery Sapphire
Novel Effect: Diamond Facets Pattern
With your foundation of flat silk in, lay in twisted #1 Metallic: Light Metallic Rainbow Gold, Red, Purple as in instructed in the Ruby point.
Tie down the intersections using one #1 Metallic.
Now for some more real fun: putting in the Diamond Pattern. I've worked the design using 2:1 Twist with the Midori #167 and #1 Metallic: Light Metallic Rainbow Gold, Red, Purple.
Remember to work the design top to bottom, right to left (I've only diagramed one pattern right in the middle). Come up at 1 and down at 2 both at the halfway point. Then come up right in the middle at 3 and down at the intersection of 4.
Waaaaa-laa! Wasn't that FUN!?!
