Item details

This listing is for a beadwork tutorial for spiral pattern Chenille rope, worked over a 3mm satin covered cord pre-finished necklace. It is an intermediate level project, and is most easily done by beadweavers comfortable with Chenille stitch. The tutorial does teach the stitch so knowledge of the stitch is not a pre-requisite.

Satin cord necklaces on which to work this pattern are available here in my shop at: The tutorial offers other suppliers as well.

The tutorial includes materials lists for two colorways of four color rope, and instructions on weaving the rope. Adapting the work to beads from different manufacturers is explained. Other colorways are shown, and design using gradation is discussed to help you develop your own color palettes. Four bonus charts for spirals with 8 colors, 3 colors, 2 colors, and a 2 color offset are included, as well as a chart for a smaller rope, worked over a 2mm satin cord.

This pattern takes a simple technique and makes is special and unique. The center point of the rope can look two different ways, depending on which side is revealed, and information is included for adding pendant focals to the finished rope.

A rope takes between 6-8 hours to complete.
