Pattern Description:

This is a listing for a Pattern/Tutorial. You will not receive the jewelry pictured above.

This pattern is a full color 9-page PDF which will show you step by step how to make the Butterfly Rope Lariat

I made this beautiful rope to compliment a gorgeous flower bead made by Lea Avroch and like the result so much, that I made a tutorial.
The lariat is 45 inches/115 cm in total- not too long (to prevent the focal bead from hitting a table top), and it offers various ways to wear it. This is a quite easy project.
With this rope, you can also make bracelets and even a pretty ring. The rope builds up quickly, it is ideal to make a lariat, but also practical for gifts and last-minute projects!

Level: Intermediate. Knowledge of Right Angle Weave is an advantage but not essential.

Technique: RAW (Right Angle Wave), stringing.

Check out my other designs using this technique, the Butterfly Rope Bracelet and the Butterfly Rope Matine, another nifty way of attaching a beautiful focal to the rope including tips how to make a curved rope.

Important note: avoid printing, or print more than one page per sheet; my patterns are designed for use with electronic devices and may print very large.
