A Little Something for Boxing Day
Recently, several of my bead weaver friends have commented that right angle weave simply gives them fits. Since it happens to be one of my favorite stitches, I thought I'd put together my own take on the basic stitch, single needle style. I've got a quick overview here. After the holidays, I'll put together a more in-depth look, including basic increases and decreases on my website, so be sure to check back in early January! Add 4 beads 1st unit, 3 beads 2nd The Basic Right Angle Weave UnitString four beads onto your thread. Stitch through your first two beads to create a loop (your stitching should form a spiraling loop and a half). Congratulations! You've just created the basic right angle weave (RAW) unit! Each basic RAW unit is composed of exactly four beads. Building our First Row Looking at a circle of right angle weave, you'll note that each unit has a top, bottom and two sides. We will build our next RAW unit off of one of those side beads. (I choose the right hand bead in my diagram). Reposition your needle if necessary (diagram 2). Since we already have one of the beads we need, we will only pick up three beads this time. Stitch back through the side bead of unit one to finish the unit, and reposition your needle by stitching through two of your new beads. Looping Figure 8 stitch pattern The stitch pattern is a looping Figure Eight. If you can see this, you're good to go. I'll keep working off of the right-most bead to build additional units. One time I'll loop up from the bottom, the next I'll loop down from the top. But in this row, each new right angle weave is built with three additional beads. Building Row Two Building our Second RowWe will work off of the top or bottom beads to build our second row. I've chosen to work off of the top beads in my diagrams at left. To build your first unit of row two, pick up three beads, and complete the circle through the top bead of the last RAW unit from row one. The trick: You already have two of the beads necessary to build the second RAW unit in this row. Take a look a the diagram - you already have the bottom and right side beads, so you'll only need to add two beads this time. Reposition your needle by stitching up through the side bead of your current unit. Add two beads. Complete the circle. Following the stitch pattern, reposition your needle and add two more beads. Keep going until you reach the end of your row! Three rows of RAW. Secure thread by stitching Additional RowsBuild Additional rows the same way you built your second row. Always start a new row by adding three beads. Continue building the row by adding two beads at a time for each new RAW unit after that. Securing Your ThreadThe best way to secure your thread ends is simply to stitch back into the main body of your bead work and stitch through several figure eights. The direction changes in the stitch pattern will keep everything tight and secure. Do this with both your beginning and ending threads. And that's it. That's basic Right Angle Weave (with a single needle).
