While learning the Saraguro beadweaving stitch (a netted brick stitch) I was struck by how much the motifs appearing reminded me of the crocheted doilies my Grandmother used to make. I unearthed her old magazines and patterns and began to play, inspired by the pictures and designs. These experiments resulted in a collection of patterns using seed beads and bugles, including the one offered here. I will be selling the designs for further mats as I complete the instructions.

You will require 11/0 seed beads and 3mm bugle beads to complete this pattern.

Please note this listing is for the pattern only, and does not include the finished item.
