Pulled Stitches Clover
A charming clover design with 12 pulled fillings!
The leaves and blooms of the charming clover design contain twelve pulled fillings in a variety of patterns. There are both linear and diaper patterns in which the emphasis is placed on tension. Tension, of course, creates a significant change in the texture of the fabric. In pulled stitches, the effect is achieved by what the stitches do, not the appearance of the stitches themselves. This intermediate text gives detailed diagrams for the stitches. It also explains the correct manner of transiting from one row to the new, so there will be no distortion on the last stitch of a row.
