an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
The Layered Rick-Rack Bangle is a complete, beautiful pattern from Contemporary Geometric Beadwork, Volumes I and II, and is a free tutorial that teaches the basic MRAW Zigged Band, a simple Double Rick-Rack Bangle, and then shows you how to add an Underskirt with Kate’s beautiful Elegant Guide Round, a two-in-one threadpath easily as impressive as the MRAW Band itself.
Enjoy the downloadable printable pattern, free video, and photo gallery, compliments of the project.

Below, Kate’s video of the MRAW Zigged Band, which shows you the easiest way to hold the beadwork when placing your increases (two beads) or your decreases (0 beads) in place of your spacers, for peaks and valleys.
