I had to look up a few tutorials online for this stitch. I just couldn't figure out how it was done. But once I figured it out, it was actually easier than I thought it would be!
My first wheel I used 4 strands of orange variegated floss.
You will see in the photo below, I have an opening in the middle of the wheel. I didn't connect all my spokes (straight stitches) in the center.
I stitched another wheel for practice. My second wheel I used 6 strands of solid orange floss and made sure my spokes of the wheel were connected in the center.
I think I like how the second one looks. Much better! Looks a lot neater. And it seemed easier to do this stitch with more strands of floss.
