Hi! This is Megan with and I'm going to show you How to Do Diagonal Brick Stitch Bead Weaving if you're familiar with how to do basic brick stitch all this is going to be is making increases and decreases in a certain place if you don't know how to do a regular bricks to show you how to do increases and decreases go ahead and watch our other videos. We have one that's how to do brick stitch bead weaving and then we have how to make increases and decreases in brick stitch so I'm gonna start with my basic ladder stitch row this is just part of basic brick stitch. If you don't know how to do this part go ahead and check that first and just go back the reenforced that a stitch so to make diagonal brick stitch go in a diagonal line, we're going to do an increase and a decrease on every row add an increased each row and then we'll let the brick stitch naturally decrease on the other side of the other side of the row we want to make sure that we're doing the increase onto the same side I'm going to go ahead and start with the increase at the beginning I'm going to go into the first thread bridge here since we're heading off to the right there when we get to the other end, we are not going to add a bead onto that last part so we'll have a decrease at the end like you naturally do with brick stitch and as you can see now you have the second row sitting on top of but also slightly to the right of the first row when you flip it over you want to go in the same direction which means when you flip it over you're gonna be heading the other the way, so we're going to make the decrease that actually occurs at the beginning of the row, we're going to go and let that happen when you pick up your beads you're going to go under the second thread bridge and now at the end of this row we want to make an increase since we want to keep heading diagonally depending on the angle so you're going to pick up another bead make your increase it's just a standard brick stitch increase flip it over. You can see we're going to continue to end in that diagonal direction it gives that more of an interesting look than just doing, if you want to not do the staggered back-and-forth consistent row brick stitch, you can also have it go diagonal and do it this way so now we're back to increase at the beginning to keep it moving to that side we're going to have the decrease at the end then just alternate you either increase at the beginning or at the end the next row we going to have our increase at the end again you'll have the decrease at the beginning increase at the end that's all there is to that, just keep heading in the same direction so you'll do an increase at the beginning of the next row and then the row following your increase will be at the end as long as you keep heading in the direction that it's going in make your increases to the side it's headed in and that's how you do diagonal brick stitch
