Sample text

Two beads that are vertically “adjacent” are 2 rows apart and separated by an interval of 2N + 1 beads in an N-around bracelet. In this case, N = 5, so 2N + 1 = 11. an N-around bracelet alternate between N and N + 1 beads. Two consecutive rows, which we call a double row, will therefore always contain exactly 2N + 1 beads. The offset between beads in consecutive rows means that the bead directly above a given bead will be two rows up—or equivalently, one double row up. 21, which also shows that two vertically “adjacent” beads (because of the row in between, they do not actually touch) are exactly 2N + 1 beads apart.

If you prefer a little more flexibility, you can simply choose a circumference and construct a design in several adjacent vertical layout strips, allowing the repeat length to be determined by the pattern (or even making a nonrepeating pattern). In fact, there are ways of designing bracelets without deciding on a repeat length or a circumference in advance! But for those techniques, you will have to wait until Part Two of this book. 16╇ ●╇chapter 1 Although a design in the bead plane gives a complete view of how the shapes and motifs in a pattern relate to one another, it can give a misleading impression of how the design will look on a finished bracelet.

11(a) shows a sheet of bead crochet graph paper tiled with an uncolored vertical layout for a 7-around, 57-bead repeat design (the parameters of the hexagonal pattern). Starting at any tile, we can place Â�adjacent tiles with either the hockey-stick translation of length 7 or a repeat translation of size 57, as marked by the blue and red arrows. 11(d) show it painted on two other layouts. The white arrows illustrate that the same two independent translations are used regardless of the choice of layout.
