A Flat Version
I wound a shuttle with thread and beads and began. Turns out you can't add a bead to the opening of a SSSR. Do a SSSR without a bead? That didn't really work, because it stuck out too much. A bare space of thread? Bit boring. How about adding a bead to that? Yes, that works fine.
Then I struggled with the foundation row. On the first attempt, it looks as though there's an extra ring sticking out. A ring without a bead? No. Same solution as before, just a bead on bare thread.
Because the rings join onto the spaces between the rings of the previous row, it's important to watch that you get the same number of rings in each row. The solution is to join the last ring to the beaded space.
I think this works, but I'd be happy to hear any suggestions for improvement.
