Weavers Tapestry Band Sampler SAL: Part 12

Welcome to the start of the third band! I know quite a few of you are keen to start stitching the stags that are in this band and luckily for you we get the fun of starting with the antlers! You will need to count carefully to get to where you need to be but it's worth it!

If you finished band two and have time to stitch this week then at the end it will look like this.
My fiancé said that he thought that this picture looked like the warp threads of a weaving were showing, which is fitting considering the source of the patterns.
I skipped that one lone stitch on either side of the plant as its part of a leaf and I can stitch it when I do the leaf next week, You can see all the parked threads - 15 of them! I wanted to make sure the plants were symmetrical so used 4 threads on each of those and I decided to make my life easier by starting each set of antlers with a thread.
I could imagine that seeing the pattern it might be a bit confusing as to what is what, so I made a bit of a key so you'd know what you were looking at - click to enlarge.

And as always the bit we have done and the pattern section we are working on:
This week's band is LONGER than the 10 stitches as it has the few "confetti" stitches from last week's pattern.

You can find the black and white pattern here

It was brought to my attention that I had missed the tops to the plants in the new band! I have edited the pattern and added them in. You can decide for yourself if you wish to add them or not.
