Daisy Chain beading is easy. Repetitive and easy and it makes such cute little bracelets, or necklaces, or ankle bracelets. Potawatomi daisy chains put a little line of leaves between each daisy. You can make your daisies all the same color, or alternate colors, or even make each one a different color!
Anyway the Potawatomi stitch is four basic motions, using minimum 3 colored beads: a petal bead, which is the petals of the daisy; a pollen bead, which is the center of the daisy, and leaf beads which are obviously the leaves. In this tutorial I am using green for the leaf beads, silver for the pollen beads, and alternating yellow and orange for the petal beads.
The first daisy to start off the chain is done differently than the rest of the bracelet:
The rest of the chain is the same from here on.
Now it is just repeating the pattern:
1 LEAF, 1 PETAL, 1 LEAF
1 LEAF, 1 PETAL
2 PETAL, 1 POLLEN
So I hope you will try out a simple Potawatomi Daisy Chain, it is my favorite of all the daisy chains and is so easy! Very cute for a summer anklet.
