Topics: Stitches, Tubular Peyote, Spiral

Q.
I've just learned the tubular peyote stitch, and I really enjoy it. I really like the spiral effect shown on the bracelets in the tubular peyote instructional video, but I can't figure out how to do it. Is there some trick I'm missing for reading/making patterns? Is that particular pattern available somewhere on the Fire Mountain Gems website?

A.
Using a larger size bead within the traditional tubular peyote stitch pattern will create the spiral effect.

The ''Bracelet with Porcelain Bead, Amethyst Gemstone Beads and Seed Beads'' how-to video and instructions uses a 4mm amethyst bead with a size 8/0 seed bead and will show exactly how to create this beautiful variation of tubular peyote stitch.
