Pattern C

Link-stitch sewing on two sewing stations, i.e. on one pair of sewing stations. Pattern C1 is a variant. Two threads are used. The sewing starts from the upper board where one thread is looped around each sewing station. The ends of the threads exit from the board and enter in the first quire. Two ends are knotted together while the other two pass each other and continue the sewing. Thus, inside the centrefold of the first quire, three long stitches, one of them with a knot, are visible. Inside the centrefold of the last quire there are three long stitches and one of them is knotted.
