Figure-8 bar weaving and examples of adding spokes and Picot loops to figure-8 bar weaving:
You work the figure-8 weave by coming up in the middle of four fabric threads with half of the threads on each side of the needle.As shown on the photo, the pattern is: loop over half of the fabric threads, bring the needle up again in the middle, loop over the other half of the fabric threads, and so on.

|Using buttonhole stitch for bar weaving and example of adding Rosette fill-ins:When I work the Rosette (Struvor) stitch I want the pulled weaved bars to form a nice symmetric Y-branch within the four corners. To accomplish this, I do 8 weaved bars of buttonhole stitches then, upon completion of the worked bars I add the Rosette stitch fill-ins.

|Wrapped bar weaving
I have used wrapped bar weaving when adding Greek cross fill-ins to a bar weaved area. Below photo shows a wrapped bar as I begun to work a Greek Cross fill-in. Click here to view my blog page on Greek Cross fill-ins.
