Once you learn, you can create practically any peyote stitch bead pattern, whether it’s a patterned cuff, a fun shape like a butterfly, or a tubular necklace.

Peyote stitch patterns are fun for both advanced and beginner beaders. Advanced beaders will breeze right through these patterns, maybe even getting creative and making modifications. If you’re a beginner, get a tutorial for starting peyote stitch bead patterns here before you jump in.
