Hi, this is Kat with beadaholique.com and i'm going to pick up all 22 beads just count and make sure 2 4 6 8 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 and 22 okay so I have my 22 beads and I'm just gonna slide them all the way down on my thread and now what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take my needle and I'm gonna go all the way down on this side and come up through that first bead so what I'm going to do now is just go through and I'm going to sort of zip up those rows so what I've added here is actually equivalent to two rows so you'll see that last bead I added will end up becoming the row above and I'm going to go through that second bead there and just kind of zip up the peyote I'm going to come back down through the up bead in the piece that I already have so that it kind of comes together like that and now I'm just going to continue to weave up and this can be a little bit tricky if you're following a pattern you'll have to be aware of which bead you're picking up in which order in order to make sure that your pattern does come out correctly but if you're trying to get a piece that's a solid color this can actually be kind of quick so you're just going through and you are just simply zipping up those two rows and you just do this all the way until you get to the top and then you just keep repeating it will start to get a little tight as you work so might be a little more difficult to kind of get your needle in there but at least this way you're not picking up a bead every time in between and for your last one you just finished by coming out that top beat and you've successfully done two rows of peyote so it's just an alternative method one can either be faster depending on which you're more used to but I just wanted to kind of show you this really neat little tip on how to do an alternative version of peyote you can find all of these supplies and many more videos at beadaholique.com you
