Has anyone attempted this bracelet?

For me, the bracelet part turned out just fine.

It was when I got to the toggle bar that I started tearing my hair out.

Maybe I'm nuts, but are these directions . . . a bit wonky? I attempted to follow the directions as written, but ended up having to tear out the last 3 rows when I was done. Once I got past the first 3 rows, I just did it by eye, trying to make all the beads form diagonal stripes.

Can anyone help me out?

If I knew, in a basic way, how to start out a peyote strip (the first 3 rows - I can eyeball it after that) which will end in diagonal stripes of alternating colors (in this case, 4 colors), that would save my hair and net you a "check" in the "good deeds" column of life.

Help?

Thanks,
~CD~

p.s. Here's an admittedly lousy, cell-phone pic of it. I liked the way it turned out, and I really want to make another. However, the toggle bar was a combination of luck, tearing out, and sheer determination which I am having trouble duplicating!
