Step 1, Round 1 should say: “String 1A, 1E, and 1A, pass through the bottom D of the same unit, and weave through beads to exit from the top D of the next unit; repeat nine (not eight) times to embellish each right-angle-weave unit with a diagonal strand. Weave through beads to exit from an edge D in Round 1 (Fig. 3).”

Step 1, Round 3 should say: “*String 1B and pass through the top D of the next unit; repeat around to add a total of 10B (not 9B). Weave through beads to exit from a bottom D at the other edge of the ring and repeat from *, this time adding 1B between each bottom D. Exit from a side D of Round 1 (Fig. 4).”

Round 10: String 1H and pass through the next B/E/B of the previous 2 rounds; repeat around. Exit from 1H of this round.

Round 11: *String 1B and 1F; pass through the next H of Round 10. String 1F and 1B; pass through the following H of Round 10. Repeat from * around; exit from 1F that points toward a B/H/B sequence.

Round 12: String 4C and pass through the next F/H/F; repeat around (Fig. 2, red thread). Weave through beads to exit from 1E of Round 8 that sits under 1F of Round 11, then pass through the nearest B of Round 7.

3) Clasp angles. Stitch 3 angled pieces of beadwork that will connect to form the triangular clasp/focal:

Rows 1-6: Use 4′ of thread to stitch a strip of odd-count peyote stitch 41B wide and 6 rows long, leaving a 12″ tail.

Row 7: Work 10 stitches with 1B in each stitch, 1 stitch with 2B, and 10 stitches with 1B in each stitch. Work a figure-eight turnaround (Fig. 5).

Row 8: Repeat Row 7 (Fig. 6, black thread).

Rows 9 and 10: Work 11 stitches with 1B in each stitch, 1 stitch with 2B, and 11 stitches with 1B in each stitch. Repeat to form another row (Fig. 6, purple thread).

Rows 11 and 12: Work 12 stitches with 1B in each stitch, 1 stitch with 2B, and 12 stitches with 1B in each stitch. Repeat to form another row (Fig. 6, green thread).

Row 13: Work 13 stitches with 1B in each stitch, 1 stitch with 2B, and 13 stitches with 1B in each stitch (Fig. 6, blue thread).

Row 14: Work 27 stitches with 1B in each stitch (Fig. 6, red thread). Note: Work 1B over the 2B increase of the previous row. Secure the working thread and trim.

Rows 15-22: Working off of Row 1, use the tail thread to repeat Rows 6-13.

Zip: Fold the beadwork so Rows 22 and 14 interlock. Weave the beads together to form a seamless join.

Clasp: Tuck one-half of 1 clasp into one end of the angle so the top of the clasp is flush with the end of the beadwork. Stitch the clasp securely in place. Repeat to add a clasp to the other open end of the angle (Fig. 7). Secure the thread and trim; set the angle aside.

Repeat this entire step twice for a total of 3 clasp angles.

The embellishments should be made in this bicone color order (from left to right): E, G, H, I, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, B, C, D, E, and F. Secure the threads and trim.”
