This design is one of those specific style of patterns. Where the beads are placed matter. Color doesn’t so much. I chose to use several hues of orange because I liked the way they look together. The green sample is nice, but just didn’t end up grabbing my eye as much. But where the beads appear does matter here. More on that later.
I do hope that once the pattern is finished and all the ends hid and good and blocked, that the piece will lie nicely without starch or mounting. Something tells me I may need to resort to that with this pattern. At least for this iteration.
