All beads in patterns are shown as delicas, and as such the # corresponds to the delica used. Seed beads can of course be used as well. Patterns are available immediately after purchase. All Pattern sizes are in inches. No instructions for brick, peyote stitch or loom are included. These are patterns only. I do have some helpful stuff on my links page.
Recommended beads to use with patterns: Delicas 11/0.
