Flat Peyote Triangle patterns

For those of you interested in making Kaleidocycles with us in our May BeadALong, we have some nice face patterns posted in the Free Pattern Library.  The idea is to copy, modify or design one triangle, make six of them, and put them into a circle to see what they look like.  Four faces (of six triangles each) makes the turning machine.

Most triangle patterns for cycles are between 7-12 beads per side, but there are no rules about odd or even counts, or what size works best. You can make them as tiny or as huge as you want to.

We would like to see your own original designs, of course, and will publish some of them in our books, so please share your favorites!

    Thank you to you and your team Kate, I’m having so much fun making the triangles and am feeling confident about the joining up of everything, that’s always the part that gets me nervous!
