You are purchasing a PEYTWIST 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.

EASTERN STAR 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 7 colors in EASTERN STAR.

I also used 6lb Fire Line thread and a size 12 beading needle. You have the choice to use this design in a couple of ways, as a bracelet or necklace! Finishing off the tube is a lot of fun and I show you what I did to complete mine, on the last two pages.

As Christmas rolls around in the year 2018, I'm reminded of the STAR IN THE EAST. The Wise-men used the star to guide them to see and honor Baby Jesus! What a magnificent site that must have been!



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. Four 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.
