Lentil Herringbone Weave
project from page 64 of the Oct 2007 Bead & Button Magazine,
by Carol Perrenoud

We are out of most of the colors pictured in the magazine. However, we have LOTS of beautiful colors of lentils to choose from, and we'll be happy to help you put together an original palette. Just give us a call!

OR:
choose your own size 8°colors
choose different lentil colors Lentils (D.L2)
see the sample card, for colors, in Lentils (D.L2)

Recommended needles and thread for all of Carol's lentil herringbone weave projects
0·NM·010 size 10° milliners' needles 25 pcs/$2.00
THREAD: choose one of any of the following:
0·PT·012·20 white 20 lb Power Pro® 28 yds/$5.50
0·PT·975·20 gray-green 20 lb Power Pro® 28 yds/$5.50
0·PT·012·15 white 15 lb Spectra® Fiber® 50 yds/$6.95
0·PT·975·15 gray-green 15 lb Spectra® Fiber® 50 yds/$6.95
Note: Carol says it's easier to thread Power Pro® or Spectra Fiber® through the round eye of a milliner's needle,
than through the long oval eye of a beading needle. That's why she specifies milliners' needles here. Bead & Button recommends size 11° beading needles.
