Elements biscornu patterns

Description

This is the basic pattern for all the biscornu

I have only included the fire biscornu main pattern as I used the same pattern for all of the elements - just with different colours. The different corner backstitch patterns I have added to the side with the colours of the biscornu so you can see what the colour placement is and how to make the back stitch area. While playing around with idea's I also came up with a couple of more possible corner bits and to give you more options I have included them - these are the ones in brown. Basically once you have done the central area you can pick any of the corners to do for your biscornu :)

Lovely! I bet this would work well as a seed bead pattern too! I may have to try it in my new bead loom.
