This pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions. It uses a variation of the herringbone stitch and although familiarity with this stitch would be helpful, it is not at all necessary. What is necessary is that you use bugle beads that are 3mm in length. The design will not work with bugle beads that are any longer or shorter. Size 1 Japanese bugle beads (any brand) work the best, whereas Czech bugle beads tend to run too long or too short for this design.
Stitch: Flat herringbone stitch
Beads Used: Delica beads, size 1 (3mm) Japanese bugle beads
