Herringbone Stitch Herringbone stitch, also called Ndebele, is a striking bead weaving stitch with a unique, tiled look. This technique earned its name because each pair of beads lies at an angle, resembling the backbone of a fish. Herringbone stitch works up in tidy columns that can be given a 3D texture by using different size beads, or be embellished with beads between each column.
