an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
This is an edit copy (never mind the page numbers and don’t worry about typos) of s a sneak peek of two of the patterns from our upcoming open-source Cycles technical chapter. Click here for a PDF in spreads. I’ll provide one in printable pages as soon as we finalize, here on this page and also in a fresh post.
The Möbius Messenger Cycle is my interpretation of the Butterfly Assembly, a really beautiful intermediate Kaleidocycle pattern.
The Red Flower Face pattern is Sylvia Lambourg’s interpretation of my Flower Face Kaleidocycle pattern, my favorite assembly for beginners or people who want a fun, easy bead-up. It’s one of my favorites from this chapter for its simplicity and knockout beauty, and I love the secret superpower it holds.
We should have these through edit and finished up (including word charts and materials lists) in a few days, but in the meantime please enjoy the peek and I welcome your comments.
