Accidentally New

There I was, disconsolately cutting Yet Another Bad Idea apart, so I was in the mood. For cutting. I saw another Bad Something which was essentially a sampler-type variation on a herringbone rope, and as I took scissors to one end, something about the variation on the other end gave me an idea, so with the beads which had so far been freed from this sad excuse for an idea, I started stitching.

It was ugly, but had a germ of something not entirely hideous, so I started again, and when I realized I had a Something, I started again, for real this time.
It's fast, textural, forgiving of the twin beads' irregularity, would work just as well with super-duos, and there's another variation which is also pretty decent.
