I’m just gaga over Melita Glavin’s delightful Milanese Pinwheel ornament. It was showcased on her blog recently along with a description of how she made it.
The picture above is of the basic stitch, check out the completed design on Melita’s blog.
I want to try out DMC’s Etoile and I have tons of metallic and plenty of rounds so I can self-finish. I think I see a quick project or two coming up!
