You are purchasing an odd count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEMS IN THE PHOTO!!
Knowledge of odd count peyote is needed as no instructions for this stitch are given within the pattern.
Many moons ago, I remember a song that my parents would listen to on the radio. "....Counting flowers on the wall, that don’t bother me at all. Playing solitaire ’til dawn with a deck of fifty one. Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo, now don’t tell me I’ve nothing to do...."
Sung by the Statler Brothers and released in 1966. Well, that song pretty much tells you the origin of this design. Nothing like a song stuck in your mind, eh!?
I have used Miyuki size 11/0 DELICA beads; 4lb Fire Line fishing line and a long beading needle to stitch with a toggle bar and ring for the closure.
For the optional PICOT trim, I used Miyuki size 15/0 seeds in OPAQUE SALMON CEYLON, #15-0429 and (2) 2mm Czech glass pearls in SNOW for the DOUBLE PICOT centers.
I used 9 different DELICA bead colors for a total of 2062 beads! There are 19 columns and 217 rows.
The finished size of FLOWERS ON THE WALL is 7 1/4 inches by 1 1/4 inches, trim to trim.
If you need to lengthen your bracelet, please continue to work the vertical columns at each end. To shorten, leave off some of the columns at each end, making sure you work off the same amounts there.
Crazy good song, this one! Old wallpaper, screaming to to be re-done and counting the flowers as you go along!!
Within the pattern you will find full color photos of the finished piece; a DELICA 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 bracelet pattern. A full color photo is also included to show you where to place the optional PICOT trim. There are 10 pages 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.
