As requested, I am providing the instructions to work this trial pattern motif in woven kutchwork method.
The drawn version of this pattern is big, and I have used pearl cotton for working this pattern- this is for photographic purposes only. If it is worked  in this way, it doesn’t look good. So, use this as a guide . I also used two different threads – one for base stitch, another for weaving.
The drawing of the pattern to be worked-

The pattern on cloth-

The thread starting point-

kutch 2

The base stitches[bands] are worked three steps. Two separate bands, and one connected band.
First band-

kutch 3

the completed first separate band

kutch 4

After completing each band, the thread goes back to the wrong side, and it is taken out at the starting point of the next band.

kutch 5

The completed second separate band

kutch 6

The starting of the connected band-

kutch 7

Take a stitch, and cross over to the opposite end, a long journey

kutch 8

Important point, when the stitch is done at this point, the thread goes under the previous thread-

kutch 9

After working the stitch in the same way as previous one-

kutch 10

When working this connected band, care should taken when crossing over the already existing separate bands, wherever required move above or below alternatively. The last stitch on this part of the connected band, worked same as the previous two stitches-

kutch 11

Complete the connected band this way-

kutch 12

First step to start the weaving. a two square journeys are required to be done around the two centre squares created by the bands. This journey helps in forming a line of thread on the outer squares.
The starting-

The first square is completed with the weaving thread.

On my previous tutorials , the weaving steps were done elaborately, but in this tutorial I thought, whoever uses this should be having this basic idea of weaving. so, if anyone needs more clarification, they can leave their comments.
Hope this tutorial was useful!
