For those who would like to develop their skills in this Japanese art and learn a more intricate, but not difficult design, this Chrysanthemum is worked at each end of the ball using an eight 'simple division' measurement. These traditionally geometric patterns will inspire you to create your own colour combinations and designs. They make lovely ornaments or gifts, and are great to hang on a Christmas tree or in the window.
