TILA TWIN BANDS

©2012, updated 2018 Deborah Roberti

Tila Twin Bands

A trio of bands made from seed beads and an assortment of two-hole beads! NOTE: This pattern was originally written in 2012 before Half Tila, SuperDuo, MiniDuo, Rulla and Czechmates tile and brick beads even existed but I updated the current version in 2018 to include examples and directions for bands created with these two-hole beads.

Stitch: ladder stitch

Beads Used: Size 11 seed beads, Miyuki Tila beads (or Half Tila beads, Czechmates brick or tile beads, any brand of 6x6mm tile beads, 5x5mm Tile Mini beads or Rulla beads) and Twin beads (or SuperDuo or MiniDuo beads)

Approx Finished Size: Width varies, depending on which beads you use, and length is as needed.

Pattern Price (Downloadable PDF only): $5.00
