I call this pattern Empress. It's a combination of two traditional designs: a diamond pattern and an inner design developed from a star. It's from Konya, Turkey.
The pattern is given for 8 epi.
- For 4 epi, print it at 200%.
- For 6 epi, print at 133%.
- For 10epi, print at 80%.
- For finer epi, divide 8 by your desired epi. The decimal is the percentage at which to print for your desired size.
The patterns requires at least two colors and a background color. The pattern image is shown, and its use in a kilim, and in progress on a Journey Loom.
The kilim image is from a rug at Araby Rug in Falmouth, Maine, used by permission.
