Now that the Cone Stitch video is on our YouTube channel, I’m hoping that beady Cones start magically appearing on Terra.
Here are some of the Cones we have loved…
Above, Christina Vandervlist’s glorious Double-Cone from Volume I. To make a double-ended Cone, all you have to do is decrease until you’ve narrowed into a likely diameter, and then continue beading on the spirals with no decrease. This will form a tube. When the tube is long enough, begin increasing again. Here is a version by Charlotte Aziz, sporting sassy turquoise felt balls, which match (in a very illusory way) the blue of the beads in the weave of the spiral.
And who could forget the tenderness shown to Dustin Wedekind’s cones by a certain Starfleet Captain?
