I love the way herringbone stitch curves when I use two different sizes together. I decided to explore designs featuring that stitch, keeping a log of my progress. This is the final piece, which I arrived at after five preliminary stages. On the way I had more ideas to explore, but keeping the log helped me stay on task and arrive at this design. To read more about the process I went through making this design follow along in my blog:
Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3 Stage 4 Stage 5
I wanted to make sure I could repeat the design, so I made a second Herringbone Petals pendant.
