TILA SUPERDUO BANDS

©2012, updated 2018 Deborah Roberti

Tila SuperDuo Bands

A trio of bands made from Miyuki Tila and MiniDuo beads or Czechmates tile/brick beads and SuperDuo beads. This pattern is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions and includes a page of blank charts so you can design your own color patterns.

NOTE: Since I created this design in 2012, a number of new two-hole beads have appeared on the bead scene, including the MiniDuo bead, a smaller version of the SuperDuo bead. Although I originally used SuperDuo beads for the Miyuki Tila bead version (left) of this band, MiniDuo beads actually work better so I updated the pattern in 2018 to reflect this improvement. When using Czechmates tile and brick beads (right), SuperDuo beads still work best.

Stitch: ladder stitch

Beads Used: Size 11 and 8 seed beads, Miyuki Tila beads, SuperDuo beads, MiniDuo beads, Czechmates tile and brick beads
