Surround yourself in Gwen. Deliberately placed colored glass beads create a unique floral pattern. The pattern has both complete text and complete charts so you can work from whichever format is best for you. Also there are free She-Knits video links that will show you how to do things such as; apply beads with a crochet hook as well as how to work some of the rows within the pattern.
