Ply-Split Mat by Linda Hendrickson

For this coaster-size ply-split mat, I used 30 cords made from 10/2 perle cotton, with a diameter of about 3/32".

The mat measures about 5" across. It starts out with a 5-pointed star center (inspired by the bottom of a basket by Jim Pochert). Once all the cords have been added, they start splitting each other. The points are wrapped and all ends are then unplied and trimmed.

The placement of color and value creates a stained glass effect.
