Flat Herringbone Stitch is a fast way to build up your beadwork. I find it similar to Ladder Stitch because you also add 2 beads at a time, but unlike with Ladder Stitch, you don’t have pass the thread back thru every 2 beads you add. Since with Herringbone you are continuously working with 2 beads you must always have an even number of beads.First you start with the Ladder Stitch. This will be your base or foundation.

To end the 2nd row and start a 3rd row, add again 2 beads then bring the thread down into very last bead from the 1st row and weave back into the previous bead still from the 1st row. Make a curve and weave back up into the last bead you just added. Now you thread is coming out of the last bead and ready to start your 3rd row.
