I was in the mood to make big waves. I didn't know how to do that. I liked the idea of learning but I got diverted time and time again. Carol Huber Cypher is a master at making waves and she was willing to show others. I was profoundly affected by the waves she made so much so that I dove in...deep. Once I reacquainted myself with herribone stitch I was ready to give it a go. Turns out making waves is rather easy. Almost meditative I would say.
My wave pattern, while similar, uses a different color palette and different bead pattern.
