This third sample was using even-weave material and blackwork.
The top sample shows a tonal square starting at the left with a very fine thread and graduating over to the right using perlé, embroidery threads and finally a thick tapestry wool making it dark.
The middle sample shows the spacing of stitches to show tones
The bottom sample shows a pattern which is developed to show tone.
I had never done blackwork before and did not find it easy counting the threads however it was an interesting challenge.
