Flower of Doom Pattern

 In my head I post far more frequently that every few months.  Clearly reality and what's going on in my head are 2 different things.   It seems I only show up for the parties...

To celebrate the dark, cool nights and falling leaves I bring you the Flower of Doom Pattern!



Flower of Doom

 

Materials

 Skull bead 

72 seed beads (added as you tat NOT on ball thread

Size :20 Lizbeth thread

 Terms

shp- space help by paperclip

vsp- very small picot

R- ring

C- chain

lj- lock join

lp- long picot

note to shuttle tatters that core thread = shuttle thread

Shuttle tatters wind 2 yards on shuttle CTM with ball

Needle tatters normal tail (24 inch)


Start by pulling thread through skull bead and hold with paperclip

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Pull a loop of core thread through  a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Lj to loop pulled through skull bead (1st paperclip)

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Pull a loop of core thread through a seed bead and hold with paperclip

C         4 lj (shp)

Lj to beginning of round

Round 2

*C       6 lj (space between chains)*

Repeat around motif

Round 3

*C       8 lj (space between chains)*

Round 4

Pull a loop of core thread through 4 seed beads, Pass  loop of thread around the thread coming out of skull, pull loop through 4 more seed beads then pass shuttle through loop of core thread, take up slack

C         5  lp 1 + (twist the lp and then join to the tip) 5

*Pull a loop of core thread through 4 seed beads, Pass  loop of thread around the core thread between the 1st 2 chains of round 1, pull loop through 4 more seed beads then pass shuttle through loop of core thread, take up slack

C         5  lp 1 + (twist the lp and then join to the tip) 5*

Repeat * to * around motif each tme making the loop between the next 2 chains,  then make a loop for hanging:

C         16  join back to base of this chain to make a ring and hide threads
