Dreamer Bracelet Patterns

"You may say I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one."
-John Lennon

One of the most popular songs of all time, it's endured for very good reason. If someone can't name any other song by John Lennon, they may still very well know all the lyrics to that song.

Today would have been his 70th birthday, and there are celebrations all over the world. For beaders who want the world to know that they are dreamers as well, I designed these bracelets. They are done in odd count peyote. Start working the bracelets in the middle and work outwards so you can stop when it's long enough for your wrist and still will have the design centered.
Please, don't feel bound by the colors I graphed the bracelets in. I use minimal palettes for a lot of my patterns so people can play with colors. If the black and white is just too stark for you, a blue and green would be a much more subtle effect. If you just can't stand the purple flowers on the dark blue background, shake that up a bit.
Here are the small previews.
A narrow bracelet,7 beads wide, this is the quickest to stitch version.

The rest are all 11 beads wide.





Right click on the individual patterns to save them to your hard drive and print them out. The last one just has the word dreamer marked out to use a blank graph for your own designs.




I have both of these albums and like them a lot. The first is a natural for any John Lennon fan, this is the brand new remaster in MP3 format. The second is 61 covers of John Lennon's songs by some very good musicians for a good cause.
