Pattern C1

Link-stitch sewing on two sewing stations, i.e. on one pair of sewing stations. Pattern C is a variant. Only one thread is used. The sewing starts from the first quire. The two ends of the thread exit from the centrefold of the first quire and enter in the upper board, make a loop and return in the first quire, where they pass each other and continue the sewing. Thus, inside the centrefold of the first quire, three long stitches and no knots are visible. Inside the centrefold of the last quire there are three long stitches, one of them with a knot.
