In right angle weave stitch, the beads are at right angles to each other. This is the most common stitch that was used in India for making 3D bead shapes.
This tutorial shows how to weave the right angle stitch using 2 needles.
As you can see, this stitch forms squares with 4 beads.
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.
Pass one needle through the 4th bead forming a ring.
For the next step, add two beads on one side and one bead on the other.
Close the ring by passing needle through the second bead.
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.
Peyote stitch vs right angle stitch
Two things to be noted here.
- All beads in peyote stitch are placed in the same direction.
- More thread is visible in right angle weave stitch. Sometimes a smaller bead is added there to cover the thread.
