Have Same Problem as Others with Pattern
Have tried this pattern but could not get the instructions to match the image of the bracelet. Have actually contacted Sue Charette-Hood regarding the other reviews and possible corrections to the original pattern/instructions. Hopefully, will be able to write a more positive review and increase the rating, subsequent to Ms. Hood's future response. I am a beginner and need help with this problem.

Disappointed 8-(
I too followed the instructions as written and ended up with something not like the picture. I will try again re-positioning the bead strands as mentioned in Lou's post to see if that will work.

I would have given it a higher rating if a correction had been posted by the author.
Review by S. (Posted on 7/2/2015)
is this a spiral
I was excited about making this bracelet as I had a stash of the right beads just waiting to be used. In the picture the beads appear to form a spiral. I followed the instructions on setting up the threads with the matching beads adjacent to each other rather than across and proceeded with the weaving. My beads did not spiral but were 2 by 2. I have since looked up other patterns and find that to spiral the 4 matching bead strands should be across from each other not side by side on the loom. Maybe I did something wrong. Has any one else had this problem?
I do like the finishing with wire a nice alternative to glue.
