Multicenters temari

MulitsThese intricately marked temari are also called multipole or just multis. Begin with a temari marked in a combination division and add support lines to make the smaller sections. Support lines are just extra guidelines stitched to the ball.

The most common multis are based on a C10(combination 10 division). You use either the side of the 6-part triangle (triangle based) or the side of the 4-part diamond (diamond based) to add support lines.
