Right Angle Weave Bead Patterns (9/4/2015)

2015 September 4

Right-Angle weave stitch, also known as RAW, is an off-loom bead weaving technique. This stitch is said to have originated somewhere in Africa, but examples can be found in beadwork from many cultures, including Philippines, New Guinea and England. Beads are stitched together with thread only making right angle turns, hence the name. The result is an almost fabric like piece of beadwork. Right-Angle weave can be woven with either one needle or two. – Wikipedia

Cubic right-angle weave differs from tubular right-angle weave in that it is a solid piece of beadwork with little “walls” between each unit.

A recent Bracelet a Week design using openwork RAW with square units sparked a discussion on the shape of this right angle weave variation. A finished panel will have edges that are round ed, instead of straight like the inner units. The inside walls of each row form straight vertical and horizontal lines because they are being pulled in two different directions by the path of the thread.

This is a very easy bracelet using right angle weave and netting. You make each piece and connect them together into the bracelet or necklace. Or you can make a ring or pendant from each piece too. You can make your own beaded toggle and bar or any beaded clasps you like. I always prefer to make a ring of seed beads and use jump rings and clasps.
