Video Tutorial – Techniques: Even Count Peyote Stitch

Video Tutorial – Techniques: Even Count Peyote Stitch

This Beadschool tutorial is about Even Count Peyote Stitch – that means you are working on rows of an even number of beads. Flat, even count Peyote stitch is great for making little bracelets, book marks, wall-hangings, beaded book covers, etc. It’s really simple and you can quickly master it, which is really important as Peyote is a fabulously versatile stitch, useful in so many different aspects of beadweaving. Once you’ve mastered the technique you can easily work in patterns and there will be videos coming soon to show you how. The only minor drawback with working patterns in Even Count Peyote Stitch is that there is no central bead, as you have picked up an even number of beads; so if you have a symmetrical design in mind you will need to learn Odd Count Peyote Stitch (video coming up next) – there’s only one small difference between the two. But you can put lovely patterns into even count Peyote as long as they aren’t symmetrical.
