Pondo (African Circle) Stitch

Pondo stitch consists of a three bead picot or point on each end, (circled in yellow) and as many 4 bead squares as you need to make the project the width (or length if you prefer to work lengthwise) you want, (circled in red) with each square being separated by a single bead.  Traditionally the single beads are smaller and coordinating or contrasting color.  In the sample, I've used size 11 and 15.
