Peyote Stitch Odd-Count Peyote StitchFlat, even-count peyote stitch is one of the most popular bead weaving stitches, and it's easy to see why. Commonly referred to as just peyote stitch, this simple back-and-forth stitch creates staggered horizontal rows perfect for incorporating patterns. From stripes, chevrons and honeycombs to lifelike images created from a bead chart, peyote stitch is a staple technique for beautiful, beaded jewelry. Odd-count peyote stitch is another option for when you want a center column of beads. More care is needed when starting a new row in odd-count peyote.
