To view this pattern you will need an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) viewer.From Barbara, "Oliver Twist is THE temari that everyone wants to make! When he's finished, it's impossible to figure out how he's made, unless you were the one to stitch this temari puzzle. "Oliver" got his name at Embroiderers' Guild of America National Seminar 2008 when after several days of teaching, my southern US drawl slowed even more than usual and my voice was strained. I mentioned "all-over" design and students thought I said "Oliver" design. I love the name!"
Instructions include making a ball, marking a simple 4 division and 14 faces, and stitching swirl designs in all the shapes on the ball. This is an intriguing puzzle of a temari design! It's very easy and when you are done, the ball will be totally covered with swirls seemingly without end. This is a beginner, 6 page pattern.Suggested supplies: scrap sewing thread for marking, 2 skeins of size 5 pear cotton in your choice of color.
