Here the close up of the Lagartera Border in the Duck and Ducklings cushion cover.
Most Lagartera patterns are repeat patterns. As you can see, Border 1 in the chart is supposed to represent the lower border in the close-up. I have improvised while working the embroidery because, I wanted the dimension of the triangles to be smaller.
Each square represents 1 hole in the even weave fabric.
Border 1: The longest line is worked over 9 squares - yarn is brought up at square 1 and taken down at square 9. The line covers 7 unworked squares. The next line is one square smaller and so on. The smallest is worked over 3 squares - yarn is brought up at square 1 and taken down at square 3. It covers just one unworked square.
Border 2: The longest line is worked over 9 squares and the shortest over 3. Diagonal lines cover 3 diagonal squares.
