LEARN and CREATE – a “Square Element” in flat peyote stitch - part 2

CONTINUATION: a "Square Element" in flat peyote stitich

  • round 5: ***pick up 2 beads in color B and go through the next bead which is in color B

Square Element - round 5, start - add 2 beads in the corner without skipping a bead

  • note: you do no longer skip a bead in the corner
  • pick up a color A, skip a bead and go through the next bead, pick up a color A, skip a bead and go through the next bead, pick up a color A, skip a bead and go through the next bead***
  • repeat ***...*** three more times
  • to summarize: each side in regular peyote adds an extra bead in each row, each corner is made by adding 2 beads
  • make a step-up

Square element - round 5, step-up

  • to finish, you add only one bead in each corner instead of two beads and do the rest in regular peyote

Square Element - final round, 1 bead in the corner, sides in regular peyote

  • attach your thread by zigzagging through your work piece
  • have fun !

Suggestions:

  • for a larger center, start with: 4 times (5 beads in color A and 1 bead in color B), thus a total of 24 beads or 4 times (7 beads in color A and 1 bead in color B) giving a total of 32 beads
  • for a larger square: simply add more rounds
  • you could also use seed beads instead of tubular seed beads (type Delica)
  • of course, you could make the “Square Element” in a single color or in as many different colors as you want
  • in round 3, you could add two beads in the corners instead of three beads creating a regular herringbone effect in the corners, but the final shape will be a little less square
  • for a bracelet: connect several squares by attaching bugle beads in between them
