You are purchasing a PEYTWIST and BRICK STITCH digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!
PEYTWIST is a wonderful stitch created by Gerlinde Lenz. What a marvelous way to simulate bead crochet! I give her thanks for her outstanding technique and her kindness in sharing with us all.
Knowledge of PEYTWIST (Peyote With A Twist, Not Crochet) is needed to create this design, as no instructions are given on how to stitch it here in this pattern. I acknowledge that there are wonderful tutorials on youtube.com. I taught myself how to do this stitch by watching a few of these videos.
COOL OCTOBER WIND is 13 beads around using a single join. I have used size 11/0 Miyuki round seed beads. I highly recommend those beads for uniformity in size. I cannot guarantee the results you might get using any other beads.
I used 9 colors in this delightfully FUN pattern.
I also used 6lb Fire Line thread and a size 12 beading needle. You can choose to make a bracelet or a necklace as I did with this design.
Also included in this design is a BRICK STITCHED charm. I used the same seeds to make the charm. I made 5 charms and with them I made a pair or earrings and a tag that dangles from the back of the necklace. A bit of wire wrapping (no instructions included for that) a few beads and some awesome end caps and COOL OCTOBER WINDS came together.
On the last two pages of this five page tutorial, I show you how I finished off the ends of my Peytwist and how I use a bit of clear tubing to give the center of the Peytwist some firmness.
I hope you enjoy this FUN pattern! October winds are almost here!
Within the pattern you will find full color photos of the finished piece; a MIYUKI bead legend (listing of colors used); a view of the pattern in REAL TIME; a full color graph large enough to read easily and a WORD CHART of the pattern. Five pages are included in this pdf download.
This pattern is in the form of a PDF file, a digital pattern, that will be readily available to you once your payment is received.
I don't mind if you make these bracelets to sell, but please give me the credit for the design within your listing of your finished piece. I would greatly appreciate it.
There are NO REFUNDS on digital files.
