Lagartera Embroidery Chart for Duck and Duckling Cushion

Here the close up of the Lagartera Border in the Duck and Ducklings cushion cover.


Most Lagartera patterns are repeat patterns. As you can see, Border 1 in the chart is supposed to represent the lower border in the close-up.  I have improvised while working the embroidery because, I wanted the dimension of the triangles to be smaller.


Each square represents 1 hole in the even weave fabric.

Border 1: The longest line is worked over 9 squares - yarn is brought up at square 1 and taken down at square 9. The line covers 7 unworked squares. The next line is one square smaller and so on. The smallest is worked over 3 squares - yarn is brought up at square 1 and taken down at square 3. It covers just one unworked square.

Border 2: The longest line is worked over 9 squares and the shortest over 3. Diagonal lines cover 3 diagonal squares.

Hope you found this post informative.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
