1. On a comfortable length of thread, attach a stop bead, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail. Starting at the lower-left corner of the pattern, pick up 11/0 cylinder beads for rows 1 and 2: one green, one cream, one red, one green, 16 cream, one green, one cream, one green, and one cream.
2. Following the pattern, work in three-drop peyote stitch using the appropriate color cylinders. End and add thread as needed while you stitch, and end the working thread and tail when you complete the band.
