Paper grid in the round pattern for an embroidered mandala

Circular paper grid
Circular paper grid for a new embroidered mandala.

In one of the early stages of embroidering a mandala I print out a paper pattern to regulate the stitches, sometimes just a plain grid-in-the-round like this one. This mandala is 34.5 cm in diameter (about 13 inches) and the grid had to be printed in pieces that here are joined with fun neon pink tape. In the next stage this pattern will be stitched to the fabric stretched on an embroidery hoop.
