 Two Drop Peyote Stitch Instruction   

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

Two Drop Peyote Stitch Instruction

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 two drop peyote is similar to a normal flat peyote stitch, except you add two beads each time instead of one.

Step 1: String the first 2 beads and loop through it again or tie a knot to stop the bead from slipping.
Leave one end of string (around 3 to 6 inches) and start stringing beads from the other end, you can add any amount of beads as long as the total number or beads is maintained at an even number divisible by 4 (e.g. 8, 12, 16)
New Row To start on the next row string 2 beads, skip 2 beads and cross the string back through the next 2 beads (represented in Blue) of the first row.  Keep on adding 2 beads at a time and each time stringing back through 2 beads from the previous row.
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 2 new beads and cross the string back through the 2 beads (green) that you last added before this. Keep on adding 2 beads at a time and each time stringing back through 2 beads from the row two.
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: you can try your own two drop odd peyote stitch too.
