Horizontal Netting is commonly used when making necklaces. I, for one this technique is my favorite. You can use the Horizontal Netting as an embellishment or what I’d like to call, making fringes with other types of beadweaving stitches.
Netting Stitch follows a continuous beading pattern of going back thru an anchor bead which connects the rows of beads and passing back thru several rows of beads.
Horizontal Netting Stitch
String your beads that will serve as your foundation.. From the bead you wanted to start to weave your netting, slide in the beads of your choice and then pass back thru an anchor bead.
Simply continue in this weaving pattern until you build up your netting stitch.
You would notice your are building up a triangle shape.
Vertical Netting Stitch
Starting with a bead stopper, string your choices of beads.
To create the first netting, you need to pass back thru the last bead from your 1st row. To do so, you can slide in small beads and create a Picot Edge or simply use a seed bead then slide the same beads as that of your 1st row. Your thread should now come out from the anchor bead.
Create another set by connecting to the anchor bead.
You would notice that as you weave up and down your create a diamond pattern.
