Checkered Flag
designed by Dianna Lynch

Level: Beginner-Medium

2 yards cord, ribbon or plastic lacing
1 lanyard hook or keyring
17 white pony beads
18 black pony beads
13 purple pony beads
1 yellow pony bead

Special Instructions:
This pattern will need reinforcing. To do this, take a separate piece of string (whatever cord, ribbon or whatever you're using), and starting at the bottom of the flag, go back through the middle 3 beads of each row all the way up to the top (as indicated by the purple stringpath), weaving the string as you would normally. Tie in a double knot at the top.
