Hi, my name is Carmen and I wonder why are my 18 rows curved to the right ? Yours in the Video look more straight…


Hi Carmen! Make sure you are keeping a tight tension on your beadwork. Pull everything tight after each addition, and this may help with the beadwork starting to appear like it’s curving. I hope that helps!
