Step 81

Step 81:Once again for the thousandth time, cross the last bead that was added to the pattern! Cross the small white seed bead labelled with a blue dot, that we just added to the pattern in the last step. As always, make sure you cross it with both ends of the fishing line in opposite directions. We are now inches away from finishing the heart pattern! It's really starting to take shape now. We only have to finish the very center part. In the next step, we will be stringing through the small white seed bead labelled with a black dot.


Step 82

Step 82:So take the end of the fishing line depicted by the black arrow and string it through small white seed bead labelled with a black dot. To the other end of the fishing line, add 2 new small white seed beads, both labelled with yellow dots. We will be making yet another circle of white small seed beads!


Step 83

Step 83:Cross the last bead that was added to your heart pattern! That is, the second of the two small white seed beads labelled in yellow dots. We have now formed our first circle of small white seed beads. Now, until with the rest of the pattern, we won't be surrounding this circle with alternating large and small seed beads. This is the only section of the heart where we won't be doing that. We will simply be making 4 circles of 4 small white seed beads each, using right angle weave.


Step 84

Step 84:Now we will be starting out second circle of 4 small white seed beads, so we'll be stringing through some of the beads we'll be using to make it. So take the end of the fishing line depicted by the red arrow and string it through the two small white seed beads, the first one labelled with a red dot, the second one labelled with a red X. They are also labelled in the previous picture so you can see which ones they are. You don't have to do anything with the other end of the fishing line in this step.


Step 85

Step 85:Now you can see that there are only 3 small white seed beads in this circle so far, so we must add a new bead to complete the circle of 4 beads. So, we will add 1 new small white seed bead to the end of the fishing line depicted by the red arrow. Mind you, it doesn't actually really matter here. You could be adding this bead to the other end of the fishing line because we are crossing it with both ends of the fishing line in the next step! So you can add it to either end first, and then cross it with the other end next.
