Persian Tile
Area 2 -- Metallic Center

Using one strand of Color E, place four diagonal gobelin stitches so that they all share in the center hole. Then, wrap the base like a whipped spider stitch for three revolutions. When wrapping a whipped spider bring your needle to the surface of the canvas very near the center of the spider. Slide under the first diagonal gobelin and wrap around it and proceed to the next working in a circular fashion around the center hole till you have wrapped each diagonal gobelin three times.
