Chasuble of St Wolfgang Candlestick

Here's another figure from the Chasuble of St Wolfgang: the candlestick. I assume.  It might be a flower, I guess.

This is the first figure after I re-strung all the cards.  Most of the many, many knots I tied in my warp threads are hidden on the back of the cards, but some of them slipped into the front while I wasn't looking.

For this figure I tried doing as the original seems to have done and making some of the pattern in the ground colour (the blue parts).  It looks OK here, but from many angles the blue rather fades into the background.
