This pattern is created by starting with a Nonpareil base whose last pass was vertical in the bath, lengthwise. Next a comb with one set of teeth would be pulled once across the bath horizontally a single time. Finally another comb with one set of set in wider intervals than the previous comb would be drawn a single time vertically through the bath from the top down, towards you.
This sample is a second.
The primary colors for this sample are dark, medium and light blue, brown and yellow ochre.
