I have a peyote word chart here's two lines:

40. (L) - (6)1, (2)2, (4)1

41.  (R) - (3)1, (7)2, (4)1


Do I start at (6) 1 on row 40?

Then go the end of the next row 41 at start with (4)1?

Definition:

Bead Murder - Premeditated crime of throwing very expensive delica beads in the trash.


Please help!

40. (L) - (6)1, (2)2, (4)1

41.  (R) - (3)1, (7)2, (4)1



My GUESS is that the numbers in parenthesis indicated the number of actual beads you're going to use, and that the number not in parenthesis indicates the bead color. Color 1 is probably the main color of the background, and color 2 is probably the color of the thing you're wanting to stand out (like an accent color)

Row 40, starting at the left, first six beads in main color (or color 1), next two beads in accent color (color 2), last four beads in main color (color 1)

Row 41, starting at the right, first 3 beads in main color (color 1), next 7 beads in accent color (color 2), last four beads in main color (color 1)

Good luck, and try not to murder your pretty delicas!

Sometimes just sleeping on something like this will net you an answer in the morning. If it's just too frustrating right now, consider putting it down and doing something else for a bit.

Hang in there!

p.s. If that represents the entire line, I'm probably wrong with my guess, b/c the total number of beads differ by 2

p.p.s. If you have a pic of what the finished item is supposed to look like, compare your chart to that to ferret out the meaning of the numbers.

Yes the number in () is the number of beads I need.

The pattern is two drop peyote so one row is 14 beads and the next row is 12 beads.

I have a pix of the project but I can't share the etsy pattern.  I's a peyote word chart and the bead chart is too small to read.  If I try zooming in the chart for a close up, all the numbers are fuzzy.

I asked the seller to send a bigger peyote chart so I can read the numbers.

Thanks.

crazyd,

Thats right!  Work from Right to left starting at the beginning of each row.

I'll posts my completed bracelets soon.

Thanks!
