A bead stitch combination to try - right-angle peyote


In the current issue of Bead&Button (October 2017), there is a stitch workshop article by Antonio Calles on a technique he calls right-angle peyote, because it combines the two stitches into a clever component that can be linked together to form all sorts of pretty designs.

You can find a couple of his projects and blank charts online (you must be a subscriber).  The basic component is easy to stitch, especially if you're familiar with both RAW and peyote.  If they are new to you, make sure you pick up a copy of B&B to get the instructions for the component!  To figure out the component and stitch together two of them as shown above took me less than 5 minutes.  It would have been less, but I changed my mind about one of the colors!
