I have been counting the stitch sequence while doing the dutch spiral necklace to avoid mistake. This was my second time doing this stitch, with counting this time, yet I still had to undo and restitch several times. Though the necklace is formed by hundreds of tiny beads, one small mistake, will mar the flow of the pattern.
Hey, I am serious. I would not waste my effort of putting hundred stitches together by ignoring those mistakes. Anyway, it is a real good exercise to train my patience.
This is for my daughter who has requested for Turquoise color. With my limited knowledge of color coordination, this is the best I could do. Hmmm...may be purple is a better match...perhaps black...or may be white.......or combination of these....or...................
I spent only three days making this necklace as compared to almost a week for the Rubi. This time round, I managed to stitch the necklace from one end to the other. With Rubi, I had to struggle with back stitch because I did the centre portion first and extended both ends to the desired length.
Actually, I wanted the centre part to be more chunky. I thought by adding more beads in the lacy part will do the trick. I was wrong. It just lengthened the shape only. I will try this stitch one more time before moving on to explore other stitches e.g. Right angle Weave. I will start the stitch with more beads i.e. 12 instead of 6 and use more sizes of bead. Hope it will work.
