Chevron Stitch Tutorial
Tip

To make it easier to learn this stitch, I recommend using larger beads in a size 6 or 8. You can also use bugle beads in place of the main color beads in the photos. When using bugle beads, make sure that you smooth any rough edges with a file before stitching with them, or string a seed bead on either end of the bugle bead to prevent the edges from cutting your thread.

Materials

  • Two colors of seed bead in size 6 or 8 (colors A and B)
  • Beading thread of your choice
  • Size 10 or 12 beading needle
  • Scissors

Begin by stringing a stop bead.

To stitch the first unit, pick up 1 B, 2 A, 1 B, 2 A, 1 B and 2 A. Pass needle and thread back through the first B picked up and pull to form a loop.
