I'm intentioned to publish a series of free patterns with the theme "flowers and leaves" every 1 or 2 weeks. The patterns include a lot of techniques, from pearl tatting to cluny leaves, nearly all with encapsulation of treads. The first series will be flat, later there will follow the threedimensional. Here is the first one: Inside the stem there is a third thread, which I will call "guide thread" (in the pattern in black),and the ds, which encapsulate the guide thread and the thread of the opposite color, are not flipped. This gives the work a nice stiffness. Try it out and enjoy!
