Chapter Two

Image 2.3 from Workbook

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.

This second task was done on graph paper building a pattern using a black pen.  The pattern is developed each row by adding an extra line to the design.

In chapter two of this second module I have been asked to look at tonal value in stitch.  This first tast was to make a sample using only back and white threads of varying weights moving from white to black and mixing the two colours and size of stitch midway.  I did not find this exercise easy but hopefully I have achieved a reasonable effect.
