Simple Beads Pattern

I always love beads work since I was a kid.  Today, I would like to share one of my favorite pattern.
I love it because it was simple to do...and adorable too especially to wear on a summer day!

Took a piece of fishing line, do pick the finest one, it makes the 'crossing' job much easier...If you have an elastic string that will be even better especially you want to make a ring out of this pattern.

I can't explain much...I add in a lot of picture and hope they can help.  Just go along with the pictures... I have drawn some diagrams at the end of the post, I hope it helps to make you understand the pattern even better!  Good Luck!!

Step 1 String in 2 green beans and cross in another 2 yellow ones

Step2 - Add in 2 yellow and 1 orange at the L(left) end

Step 3 ...don't be frustrated... follow along...come..
Lead the L line end into the yellow ones...but skip the orange bead.

Step 5 Pull the string tight so you can see the pattern is forming...

Do the same for the R (right) line end add two yellow beans but
share the orange bean, go through from bottom and cross again through
the two yellow beads....(see, the more I describe...it get even confusing?!)

Step 6 -  Now...you are doing a great job if you have arrive here....
Add two more yellow beads and cross the R and L through them...

Step 7 Finally....

Step 8 Don't stop... the more the merrier....

Haha!  If above tutorial doesn't help.... try the diagram below...
(sorry, you must started to curse me when you reached step 2 above.... 
the instruction was unclear at all!)

Now, here a better look into the pattern...
