The crossing of the threads always happens at the mid-point of two sections. This is the fact. When I posted this article, I showed you how to apply this fact to simplify your marking paper, as in 28 sections into simple 7 sections. Today I am going to show you how to simply your markings of period of eight scales design. This involves "weaving" so you may not find it simplifying but I will show you how nonetheless.
The weaving is exactly what the name suggests; you weave your thread when stitching. When you stitch the first path, there is nothing on the thimble body so no crossing of threads at all. When the second path is stitched, your current thread travels over the thread of the first path and it makes the crossing of the threads and the crossings form the horizontal line on your thimble as you go, to give it a two-scales design. The weaving is to have the thread travel beneath the existing threads on the thimble body. How many threads under which your stitching thread travels and where to weave determine the design.
According to the design diagram, you are supposed to start stitching from first path in red, then the second in blue, the third in green, and the last in yellow with the marking paper of sixteen sections.
Here is a picture where I finished stitching first (white) and third (green) paths as if I was going to make a two-scales thimble.
Path 6 was done.
