When I was browsing some old patterns on the net, I came across some cord work. This gave me an idea of working a row of beads between two chain stitch lines. I don’t see any connection between the two things here, still a pattern was drawn to incorporate this idea on a yoke. The tunic fabric-

I have tried some new ideas on some of my tunics. This is one of them.
Queenie as you requested I have posted details of the work.
