Step 6

Step 6:Now we're gonna take the black string and put it through bead 2. Bead 2 already exists, its in the very first circle of 8 beads we begun with. To the red side add beads 16-18.

Step 7

Step 7:This step's very easy, all your doing is crossing both strings through bead 18. Pull tight, and you've got another circle of 5.

Step 8

Step 8:Put the red string through bead 3, as pictured. Bead 3 is already in your pattern. Add beads 19-21 to your black string.

Step 9

Step 9:This step is easy, just cross at bead 21. Pull tight, and you've got another circle of 5 beads to your collection.

Step 10

Step 10:Cross your black string through bead 4, which is a bead already in your pig. It's from the beginning 8 beads we started with. On your red string add new beads, 22-24.

cute and the numbers do make things easier.

Sorry about that. I know it's a lot of pages. That's why this is the last pattern ever that I took pictures for. From that point, I've started creating diagrams to explain beading patterns. It makes the instructions way shorter. What do you mean by creating a table?

Thank you
Soo many Page :P
you should try putting a table which shows pass beads, add beads, last bead over and times
THANK YOU it was very helpful :D:D

I think it would take too many pages that way.

It's alright though. Just keep up the good work

Have you thought about just printing the pages as is? You can tell your printing preview options not to include the background, so it should just be the pictures on a white background. And very soon text too. LOL!
 Jen Lawson on September 2, 2008:
Oh I see. Fair enough, I'll manage.

I didn't mean that things would go wrong with your instructions, just with my copy and pasting. But I could always double check your originals here anyway, if things go wrong.

Sorry about that!! I never thought about it. It's just easier for me to use the same template for each page, and that way no matter how many pages a set of instructions has, I can use the same template. And as for spreading the pattern out over more than one page rather than clumping them all into one long page, that's for loading time. I don't want you to have to sit for hours while the page loads! There are 110 pictures in this beaded pig pattern alone!

Hopefully things won't go wrong because my instructions are very thorough LOL. Stay tuned for the words, I'm planning to work on them this week and hopefully get them all posted by the end of the week.

I just wanted to add that you're wonderful for putting these up, and I really appreciate them. You're so clever!

I find it very difficult that you start at step 1 on each page! I copy, paste and print the instructions. I find it easier that way. But if something goes wrong, it's so tricky to work out which "step 1" to use.
