In my opinion once you go past 9 your beads will sag once the thread stretches.And I've never found a thread that doesn't stretch ! Also , I do Cheyenne style lazy stitch , different than Lakota style !

You saved the day.

Then one row 7 beads and the other row 6 beads for a total of 13 beads for the pattern. With 13 beads the pattern looks better, the proportions of the elements than seems just to be right. 9 Beads looks wrong.

I take your word on the nine beads and the stretch of thread.

I know, that I know only tiny bits. I only know the lazy stitch which is described in those books you get a Crazy Crow. In those books nobody distinguishes between Cheyenne and Lakota lazy stitch or may eyes are already too bad to recognize.

Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

Enjoying one moment at a time,
Accepting hardship as a pathway to peace.
