CAL time with Frog Hooker again. As usual, I got a little carried away with the pattern. Say hello to Pirate Pete, the Floppy Cockatoo.
My hands are working sporadically again (hooray!) Cath Thomas’ Bolas Canastas with Miyuki 4516 Picasso teal 11º rounds. So happy with this bead!
Here’s the graph for the color placement for the red and white earrings. The blank ones are white beads. Remember you’re working CRAW so your starting bead is the bottom right. I usually string the bottom beads (white, red, white red) and tie them in a circle for my starting base.
The bigger reindeer has modified ears and I used the next smaller size hook for the eyes and noses. I’ve been out of black yarn (gasp!) so I used beads on the eyes. They’re fun to make. Thank you for the pattern, Rachel!
I’m trying something a little different tonight – chicken scratch embroidery with beads. I’m working on 1/8 inch gingham with 2 strands of DMC cloth and 15º Miyuki rounds.
