Turn to the back of your embroidery to the pattern tacked there. In the same direction as this pattern indicates, sew some stitches  in line with the fur frill.Jaspers Neck Chest 2

Turn back to the front. A guide has appeared  to allow us to see the frill’s position.

Continue to embroider this area in the lightest tone

Jaspers Neck Chest 4In the neck area similarly, the lightest tones stand out.

Again, keeping in synch with the pattern on the back, embroider these areas first.

The  darkest tones now become obvious and can be embroidered next. In some areas the difference between dark and light is too strong and can be softened by using medium tones.
