  • 1 cross
  • 32 beads (3 of which can be different if you want to use them as Divider Beads.)
  • 3-way connector bead.
  • Fabric glue to secure thread ends
ch - Chain
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. When you remove the stitches from your needle, 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.
