About the designer

My name is Joanna, and I have been bead weaving for over a decade (how time flies). I love creating with those tiny seed beads...it's time consuming but very rewarding!

Peyote Stitch Odd Count

from Unique You
(5) Name: 'Jewelry : Peyote Stitch Odd Count
Peyote Stitch Odd Count

Pattern Description:

Learn odd count peyote stitch today with an easy to understand, step-by-step tutorial. Clear, close up pictures and written instructions with each step make it simple. A "tips" section gives a little extra help to those new to beading.
If you've never tried odd-count peyote stitch before, or have only been frustrated trying it in the past, give this tutorial a shot.

The only difference between regular peyote and odd count peyote is the number of beads you start with. Peyote starts with an even number of beads, and odd count...you guessed it!

Also, with odd count peyote there is a "turnaround", whereas with regular peyote there is no turnaround needed. Each row sets you up for the next.
