While my beading supplies were handy, I thought I'd try out an idea I've been contemplating for some time. I came across this cross stitch pattern on Pinterest and wondered if I could use it for bead knitting:
I can. It's not easy, my check process doesn't work so well with a non-repetitive pattern. At one stage I 'fudged it', but one blue bead spoils the line and glares out at me, so now I make sure I correct every mistake!
I struggled to trace the pattern back to its origin. The picture links back to Instagram which doesn't help much. I came across the name Isabelle Vautier in a comment on a similar pattern, so I looked that up and found a needlework website, but couldn't find this pattern or anything like it. There's a signature on it that looks like Fran:
Thanks Fran, I love the design.
