Creating Your Own Designs

After you've mastered the knots and have done some projects, you may want to design some of your own pieces. I suggest that you get a sketchbook and draw out your ideas. Even if your designs are only partially formed, it will give you a place to start. I encourage you to not be too rigid with your expectations at first. It's sometimes good to experiment and let the piece "create itself." It may change and morph from your original idea, but that's how you learn new things and develop your craft.

Cavandoli patterns can be designed using standard graph paper and colored pencils, or with computer programs designed for loomed beadwork. Each square of the graph will represent one knot, either a DHH or a VDHH. To differentiate the knots, you can use different colors or make a mark of some kind that indicates which kind of knot it is (see Figure 1). The actual knotted piece may tend to be slightly longer and narrower than the graphed image.
