Create the standard four quadrant sections, separating front from back and left from right. Isolate a triangle section in the fringe area
Using Formula 1 begin highlighting with a diagonal back slice in the back quadrant and create a textured stitch.
Moving on, take the next slice and create a fine stitch; apply Formula 2. Continue alternating formulas through the remainder of the back sections. Use the same pattern throughout both front quadrants, continuing to alternate formulas.
In the triangle fringe section, take a zig zag parting horizontally, and stitch out the top of each angle, using Formula 1.
