Free Peyote Stitch Bead Patterns (6/20/2014)

2014 June 20

Peyote is probably the most commonly used stitch and has a long history. It is a great stitch to start with if you are a beginning beader. Peyote stitch is a favorite among many experienced beaders also. I have a friend that can whip out a peyote stitch pattern faster than some people can get their needle threaded. OK, not quite that fast. But she’s faster than anyone I know. Here as some fun patterns to try, and some beginner’s basic to get started.

Peyote Stitch is a basic stitch that is easy to learn. Patterns using peyote stitch always need to be an event count of columns, e.g. The stitch begins by stringing a length of beads that will become the first two rows of the project (A in the diagram above).

It is a nice, straightforward stitch to get you started on your bead-weaving journey and it makes up quicker than some other stitches do.
