EXODUS 35:35
The Lord has given them special skills as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple, and scarlet thread on fine linen cloth, and weavers. They excel as craftsmen and as designers.

I am among the craftsmen of God. The only way to know if you are one is to use what you have in you and begin crafting!

COMMENT

This pattern can be made into a smaller or bigger tablemat.  The midpoint for the star will always be a circle wider than the circles below and above it.  The midpoint for this pattern is  row 5. The steps in row 5 is what you need to commence the midpoint row for the first star. It prepares your work for the decrease and change of patterns of subsequent rows.

Using a smaller size of beads will result in a smaller table mat. Observations or suggestions are welcomed!
