In this post, the embroidery on the yoke is detailed. The stitches worked are predominantly herring bone,with outlines worked in back st.
I started with green colour thread-

The outlines are worked in back stitch in cream and yellow.

The fully completed yoke with beads on my next post. The idea for embroidery is taken from gujarati embroidery, the motifs are similar, but with some differences – the bead work, the straight stitches were added for embellishing. So , this is Not a authentic gujarati embroidery yoke piece.
