I have received many emails asking for pictures so I will be posting a picture for each week even if we don’t need step by step photos of the stitches. So here we go with clue 4!
We are going to stitch a Trellis/Wave Combination this week. Beginning on Row 3, Pleat 2, that is not a mistake – begin on Pleat 2!
Stitch a down cable (see you just formed a flowerette from the stitches from clue 3), travel up to Row 2 2/3, travel up to 2 1/3, travel up to Row 2, up cable, down to 2 1/3, down cable, up to 2, up cable, down to 2 1/3, down cable, up to Row 2, up cable, down to 2 1/3, down to 2 2/3, down to Row 3 – 16 stitches. Your next stitch begins the sequence again and will complete the flowerette. Stitch the sequence across the Row, but do not tie off your thread. Leave the floss at the end. After seaming your ornament, you can thread up your needle and stitch across the seam to complete the sequence by stitching the final stitch on Pleat 1.
Stitch a mirror image beginning on Row 9 with pleat 2, stitch an up cable, travel down to row 9 1/3, travel down to 9 2/3, travel down to row 10, down cable, up to 9 2/3, up cable, down to 10, down cable, up to 9 2/3, up cable, down to 10, down cable, up to 9 2/3, up to 9 1/3, up to 9. Continue across the row. Again do not tie off, but save some thread to stitch pleat 1 after the seam is sewed.
Beads: If you beaded every other Triple Crown in clue 3, bead the first stitch on rows 3 and 9 of the sequence so the entire flowerette is beaded. If you beaded the horizontal stitches on Rows 3 ½ and 8 ½ in Clue 3, bead the horizontal stitches on rows 2 and 10.
Bonus optional clue coming later this week!
