More beads

Pattern: Trendy circles by Carol Dean Sharpe (Interweave store)

Beads: Size 11 seed beads

Thread: Nymo D in light pink

Technique: Odd-count 2-drop peyote stitch

Modifications: The pattern calls for cylinder beads, which I now know is the same as delica. This means the size is not the same. In the original pattern there are 6 repeats of the circles, mine only have 4.

Notes: This was the first time I tried peyote and that’s probably why the setup row looks a little bit wonky. I guess the tension was off. It was a fast and fun project. Yeah for using larger beads. I’ve bought a few bead patterns from Interweave and they are not nearly as clear and direct to follow as knitting patterns. For me as a beginner, they are quite difficult to follow. It’s a beautiful pattern though and I love the clasp.
