Start with 4 beads. Move the beads to the middle of the thread. Both ends of the thread will be used for weaving. So both ends will have a needle.

This is not very common as the single needle right angle weave stitch. I believe using single needle is quicker and easier. But the end product looks the same irrespective of whether we use one needle or two needles.
