Flower Face Cycle or Bangle: Free Pattern Release

Please enjoy one of our first free releases, a beautiful Flower Face assembly that is a bit unusual for a cycle and a fashion statement as a bracelet or bangle. This architecture was my idea for an easy Cycle assembly, and the colour pattern was designed by Sylvia Lambourg from France.

This release has word charts, a full materials list, and step-by-step instructions. Please make your own magnificent versions too, and be sure to send in photos (kate@katemckinnon.com) so we can include your work in the books.

If you intend to print the pattern and work from the pages, please choose the “Pages” layout, and print at 8.5 x 11, standard letter size. There is a picture of the bangle at actual size that can be cut out with scissors and tried on. (Click the blue words to access the PDF)

If you want to view on your screen, you may prefer “Spreads“, which will show you what the pages will look like in the book. Have fun, and please feel free to share this pattern with anyone you like – just remember to credit Contemporary Geometric Beadwork and Sylvia Lambourg. (Click the blue words to access the PDF)

    Thank you for the beautiful pattern. I will have to study it carefully because I’m new to the Cycle concept.

    I’m a little confused when looking at this. Each flower module consists of 6 triangles, making a total of 24 triangles for the 4 sides 2 of the modules look to be exactly the same in terms of colors used. Referring to the pick edge. On page 6, all 4 modules look exactly the same The photo on page 6 of all 4 modules zipped together, shows 1 of them with a deeper red color On Page 10, the word chart is only for 3 modules

      I think you might need a better printer! Each of the modules is different, but only slightly. And each triangle is different too. Try following the word charts if your computer screen or printer can’t show you the true colours?

      Hi Judy, they are not all the same, you may not be seeing all of the colours properly in your home printer printout or on your screen. And as far as making more modules, it is VERY easy to substitute colours – or use more of one kind of flower. Once you make one, you will see how simple it is to copy or modify. In the book, we have word charts for many, many Petal Triangles – this is just a peek really.

    Thank you so much for this pattern! I have been waiting patiently for it. Love flowers but am allergic to everything that is green, grows, and blooms. 🙂
