Circular Brick Stitch

Product Details

Instructions:

Step 1

For your first sample, string 3 beads of color 1, push them towards the end of the thread, make a knot and  leave a 5” tail.   The illustrations show the thread loose so you can see the thread path, however, you will be pulling the thread taut each time you add beads.  These beads are the original "3-bead start."

Step 2

Bring your needle up through the 3rd bead of the 3-bead start.

Step 3

String 2 beads of color 2 and pull the thread taut.  These 2 beads will set on top of the 3-bead start.

Step 4

These 2 beads are the beginning of the 2nd round.  Bring the needle underneath the thread between the 3rd and 2nd bead of the 3-bead start.

Step 5

Bring the needle back up through 5th bead, the last bead strung.

Step 6

Now you can see the 2 beads are setting with the bead holes setting vertical.

Step 7

String 1 bead of color 2 and bring the needle under the same thread as the last beads.

Step 8

Bring the needle back up through the last bead strung so this bead will also set with the bead hole vertical.

Step 9

String 1 bead of color 2.  Bring the needle past the 2nd bead of the 3 bead start and under the thread between the 2nd and 1st bead of the 3-bead start.

Step 10

Bring the needle back through the last bead strung.

Step 11

The last bead you strung should set with the bead hole vertical.  Continue adding one bead at a time until your needle is back to the 1st bead of color 2.  Bring the needle down through the 1st bead of color 2 and back up through the last bead strung. You are ready for the next round using color 3. Begin each round with 2 beads and then add 1 bead at a time.  Continue for a total of 12 rounds.

Remember, if the next bead you add under 1 thread is too snug, remove the needle, bring the thread out and take the needle past the next bead of the previous round and under the thread with the next bead added.  It is better to have the beads a little loose than too snug which will begin to ruffle.
