Czechmates are two-holed tile beads, much like Miyuki Tila beads and about the same size, but they are thicker, with rounded edges and corners, which makes it difficult to hide thread paths between them in designs where the Czechmates sit side by side. These bands came out of a desire to remedy this problem. The weave is a relatively simple one and once you get the hang of it, the variations are endless. This pattern has directions for four bands and it is fully illustrated with detailed step-by-step instructions.
