You are purchasing an odd count peyote digital pattern....NOT THE ITEM IN THE PHOTO!!

**Knowledge of odd count peyote is needed as no instructions for this stitch are included in the directions.

I used to work in my boy’s elementary school, years ago now. There was one story that I read many times called THE VERY HUNGRY CATERPILLAR written and illustrated by Eric Carle. Boy, what a genius! I did my best to capture the little caterpillar from egg to butterfly, stopping over to eat many fruit stuffs along the way. I wanted to bring the caterpillars colorful journey to beads! I hope you like it!

There are 28 different bead colors in this pattern. It was a challenge but if you just pour out the colors you need in a particular section, it goes easier. From my stitching experience on this design it pays to take your time and enjoy the "journey". I had a blast designing and stitching it. I hope Mr. Carle would be proud!

I used size 11/0 Delica beads, 4lb Fire Line fishing line and a toggle bar and ring for the closure. For the optional PICOT trim I used size 15/0 Miyuki round seeds in DURACOAT GALVANIZED MUSCAT (#15-4206).

I used 28 different colors for a total of 2289 DELICA beads! There are 23 columns and 199 rows.

The finished size of THE RAVENOUS WORM is 1 3/8 inches wide which includes the PICOT trim by 6 5/8 inches long before adding the clasp.

If you need to make your bracelet longer I would choose a toggle bar and ring closure as I have shown here as you can extend it by adding more jump rings. If you want the peyote longer I would work DELICA #434 and DELICA #1497 in a striped fashion at each end until your desired length is achieved.

Thank you Mr. Carle for a wonderful story with such brilliant illustrations for ALL of us to enjoy! Young or old, this story will live on in beads!


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 pattern.  Eight very HUNGRY colorful pages await you 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 this bracelet 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.
