 Decreasing Square Stitch Instruction   

This is the beading instruction on how to decrease on a square stitch project, if you are new to this beading technique, look at the flat square stitch instruction first.

Decreasing Square Stitch

Notes before you start: For beginners, start with the Flat Square Stitch Instruction.  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 (0.22mm) without the needle.
Two different method of decreasing are featured below:

Decreasing on the outside edges

When you reach the row you want to decrease, loop the ling back through to the bead above the new row of shorter beads.
Purposely missing out the first few beads of the new row (the number of bead misses depends on how much you want to decrease).  The line emerging and adding one bead at a time using the same looping square stitch method until you reached the length (not full row if you want to decrease on both side) you want.
Continue beading the next row and decrease whenever there is a need to.

Decreasing within the Square stitch

Start the new row as per normal, when you reach the middle, add a new bead but purposely miss one bead from directly above, instead loop through the bead beside the missed bead (represented by the red line).
Continue to bead as usual and decrease as and when it is required.
