an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
If you’d like to make the triangles that we are using to construct our new Foolproof Kaleidocycle demo, here are some lovely graphs drawn by Karen Beningfield, with word charts created by Kristen Ho. We chose our beads with an eye to getting good photographs, and so the colours shown in some of the photos may be more vivid to the camera than the eye, particularly in the Complex Swirl pattern at lower left. Improvise, if you want shiny brights.
Make six of each pattern for a basic Kaleidocycle. You will want more for a bangle, but there is no need to have them all ready at once.
UPDATED: Here are all four word charts, mocked up for early release. I am still thinking about how to typeset all of these for the books, and so these are not in final form. I welcome your comments.
