Designer: Leslie Rogalski and Crystal Hudson
Published: November 14, 2008
Technique: Brick Stitch, Ladder Stitch

All the signs of the zodiac are here for a whole year of good fortune. Brick stitch makes these pendants nice and sturdy. Learn brick stitch and how to increase and decrease along the outside edges. Using this technique, follow the patterns row by row to create cosmic pendants for everyone you know. Dog tags begin with a 23-bead ladder across and are 19 rows high when completed. This project is from Step by Step Beads.

Has anyone charted the nautical flag alphabet? I'd love to publish that in Step by Step Beads! So easy and graphic!

Started yesterday with the Taurus for my sister-in-law. It's my first attempt in brick stitch and it looks wonderful so far.

Ever since this article ran in SbSB, I've been making beaded dog tags, in my own patterns and a slightly altered shape. They're addicting!
