Free Peyote Stitch Bead Patterns (4/7/2014)

2014 April 7

Peyote Stitch is probably the most popular stitch. It’s been around a long time and is a great beginner’s stitch. It works as a base for building on or embellishing. It also makes great bracelets and cuffs from patterns made from pictures. While I’ve included some patterns today, I also found some techniques and tips for expanding your peyote expertise: Reading Peyote Graphs, Marking Your Place in Peyote Graphs and Finishing Peyote Stitch patterns. Enjoy!!
