It’s another start of the week and we’re hoping to teach you again another beading stitch called “Triangle Weave” with these step by step jewelry making instructions.
Triangle Weave is a beading stitch consists of three sides. It is often seen on flower motif beaded jewelries. While threads are going in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions you can use the stitch and create a row of Triangle Weave…
Or you can weave it in circular direction and make a beaded flower shape.
How is it done? Let me try and show you how with these diagrams. I used bugle beads on the diagrams so you can clearly see the triangular shape.
Cut a few inches of thread. Leaving about 6-7 inches tail slide in your beads and going in clockwise direction following the arrows.
Then pass the thread twice onto each bead.
On the diagram you’ll see the 1st pass of thread in dotted lines and the 2nd pass of thread in full lines.
This is your 1st triangle weave.
Make your 2nd triangle weave going in counter-clockwise direction. Slide in 2 beads and pass the thread following the arrows.
Pass the thread twice similar to what you did on your 1st triangle weave.
Now you have your 2nd triangle weave.
To make a 3rd triangle weave you now bring your thread in clockwise direction.
Repeating the same weaving pattern you can create a row of Triangle Weave.
To create a Circular Triangle Weave, create 2 triangles going upward starting with clockwise direction and then counter-clockwise.
Slide in 2 beads and weave going to your right in clockwise direction.
Repeat weaving counter-clockwise and clockwise while adding 2 beads until you complete a circle.
That’s it! You’re done with your Circular Triangle Weave.
Practice makes perfect so here are tutorials to familiarize yourself of the Triangle Weave.
