 Circular Flat Peyote Stitch Instruction   

The beading instruction on circular flat peyote stitch, if you new to beading start on the even count flat peyote stitch is easiest to start off with.

Circular Flat Peyote Stitch

Notes before you start: For beginners, start with size 11 seed beads.  The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.  You can use a string and needle or Nylon fishing line (0.25mm) without the needle.

The circular flat peyote works from the center out, adding beads when necessary to fill out a row,  the increase should be constant throughout the row.

Step 1: String 3 beads and tie the 3 beads into a ring.
Leave one end of string (around 3 inches) and start stringing beads from the other end.
String the longer end of the string back through a bead nearest to the knot.
New Row To start on the next row string 2 beads and cross the line through the next bead from row 1.
Repeat this 3 times (6 beads added).
End off this row by stringing the line back through the bead from row 1 and cross back through the first 2 beads added on row 2.
Be sure to keep the tension tight but not too tight as this will make your work stiff and inflexible, especially if you want to bead around an object.
Step 2: Now the third row, pick up 1 bead and cross the string back through one bead (blue). Keep on adding 1 bead at a time and each time stringing back through 1 bead from the row two.
Step 3: Row 4: Now start adding 2 beads at a time and string back the line through one bead each time from row 3 (red).
End off this row by stringing the line back through one bead from row 3 and two beads from current row (shown by the green line).
Step 4: Row 5: Now adding one bead at a time and cross the string back through one bead from row 4 each time. (similar to step 2)
By now you should be getting the picture of how this technique works. Continue to bead row by row until you get your desired length. Remember to keep the tension of your bead work right.

Tip: add 2 instead of 1 bead when the gap between the beads gets too big.
