Things have been off-kilter at my house since the beginning of the year and I haven’t had much creative energy for beading. My mojo finally reared it’s head and I’m starting to get a few ideas again. I designed this odd-count repeating pattern in black and white. It is worked in 1- and 3-count peyote and is 17 Delicas wide. When you get to the bottom of the chart, start back at the top and work until the desired length.
I liked the pattern enough to keep it and then decided to see how it would look in shaded colors in place of the white. I used red/violet, wine and rose. Independence Day will be here soon and it would look good in red/white/blue also.
This chart is too small to work from but it will show you how it will look, turned on the side, while you’re stitching. Maybe a picot border in black 15’s and a bar clasp to finish?
If you work the pattern, I would love to see a photo. Happy beading!
