Box #3 is called “Red Knot”. I wasn’t feeling this one at all. It looks great, I’m really happy with it and I was very much looking forward to beading this box but when it came to it I just wasn’t in the mood. But 1 box a month is the challenge and I’m going to make it.

Red Knot is a lot bigger than the previous boxes so naturally it took longer to make and it had a material cost of 20€.
I deviated a little bit from the colors listed in the book. The red used in the book is actually the same red I used in my first box but I wanted a darker red so I went for maroon.
I ran out of color A when I was about 4 rounds away from being finished with the lid so I used color B instead. You’d have to have some kind of super eyesight to be able to spot that though so it does not by any means ruin the pattern.

That’s it for the triangle-shaped boxes. Next up, the hexagon!
