Daisy stitch variation

For an 8-bead daisy:
pick up 4 beads plus center bead(s) and go back into first stitch. Pick up 4 beads and enter the last bead of the first 4 picked up at beginning, Then pick up 4 more beads plus center bead and enter from reverse the last bead of the previous 4 beads. Pick up another 4 beads and enter the bead just after the center bead in the previous stitch. this continues to as long as wanted. It makes a very good lariat. Picture of work in Beadworkers guild Intro to beadwork, bracelets. I sold this one at the Dead Sea and decided to make more using a lot of older beads I didn't know what to do with. It's mindless beading and fast.
