Pumpkin patch bracelet pattern

1. On a comfortable length of thread, attach a stop bead, leaving a 10-in. (25 cm) tail. Reading the pattern starting at the bottom left-hand corner, pick up 26 11/0 cylinder beads for rows 1 and 2: one olive, nine purple, four amethyst, one white, one amethyst, and 10 white. Complete the band in flat even-count peyote stitch. End and add thread as needed, but do not end the working thread or tail when you complete the band.

2. With the working thread, sew through the last row to exit the third up-bead from one edge with your needle pointing toward the other edge. 

3. Pick up a cylinder in the same color as the one your thread is exiting, and sew through the up-bead again. Continue through the last row to exit the next up-bead. Attach a cylinder to each of the next eight up-beads, and end the thread.

4. Slide a Toob finding over the beads added in the previous step, and use chainnose pliers to bend each end flap down to secure the finding. 

5. Open a 4 mm jump ring, and attach the Toob finding to half of the clasp.

6. Remove the stop bead from the tail, and work as in steps 2–5 to finish the other end of the bracelet.
