|* Size 10 thread||* 1 cross||* 32 beads (3 of which can be different if you want to use them as Divider Beads.)||ch - Chain|
|* 3-way connector bead.||* Fabric glue to secure thread ends||HS - Half stitch|
This piece is made using beads and half stitches. A half stitch is the first OR second part of the double stitch. As you tat, your work will twist, make sure that the stitches fit snuggle together. This half stitch causes the chain to twist and is called a Josephine Chain or Spiral Stitch.
Take 8" of thread as core thread and add 2 beads
Because all the beads will be on the core thread, it is easiest to cut a 24 inch piece of thread and add it to a flat shuttle (or anything that can be unwound easily) since 30 beads will be cumbersome to handle.... it's easier to add the bead (or 2) to the tail when needed.
