Motif #4

 The first pattern is a tied stitch in NN and then surrounded by Marlitt
 The second stitch was all worked in two strands of NN.  The 3rd large square is worked with half NN and half Marlitt satin stitches
The fourth square is worked in Scotch stitches in NN and half a Scotch on top to create the shapes.
If you are going to work this design, please note both Lara and I think you will need two spools of the Kreinik #4 braid and two skeins of Marlitt.  We are not sure yet about the NN and will keep you posted.

And.....don't forget somewhere around the 1st or so,the combination of this blog and the old one should total about 200,000 reads.....if  you leave a comment, I will be doing a give away and will use the comment closest to the 200 mark......more details on this later and I will keep you posted as to when we might hit that mark!

Hi Pat,

Both versions are looking great!

Each block is quite interesting to see. I'm making mental notes for stitches I might use later.

hey pat, i am not sure about the marlitt as i am not using that fiber but i definitely have to use an extra skein of soie d'alger and probably the NN. now that could be because i have had to rip out a lot, but still, best to have two skeins of the overdyed just in case. i am really glad i went on the search for an extra NN for me.

This is beautiful! It's so interesting to see how different the two versions look based on the colors.

Are you doing anything special to make the Marlitt more manageable?

Marlitt, is fairly easy to manage....dampen it LIGHTLY with a small sponge and I use my laying tool.

I love the way this is stitching up.
