Free Online Kasuti Embroidery Tutorial Sample 3.4 - Conch Shell Border

This design is worked on a similar principle as all the designs in session 3. Locate a clear path for the onward journey. Work all the side-trips on your return journey.
Here are the steps to tackling this pattern. Do note that this is not the only way. It's just the way I'd do it.

Step 1: Start at 1 and follow graph until you reach 2 from the other side. Your onward journey is complete.

Step 2: Return journey starts at 'a'. 'e2' to the part indicated in the image below is a major side-trip and so is the section A-B. 

Notice that all the samples in session 3 have huge sections of the pattern treated as side-trips.
