This design is all about groups of three, which inspired its title. This pattern requires 6mm and 4mm round beads or pearls, 6mm bicone crystals, and 1 or 2 colors of 11/0 seed beads. Smaller Czech 11/0 seed beads work just as well as larger TOHO 11/0 seed beads do with this design. Using the larger seed beads results in slightly larger triangle components. This difference can be seen in both close-up images, which show the smaller seed bead components above the larger seed bead components for comparison. I hope you enjoy this free beading pattern!
