    Use this pattern to stitch a band of even-count peyote stitch for a stylish cuff bracelet. You can finish the ends by making beaded end loops and attaching them to a ready-made slide clasp. The completed band is just over one inch wide.

    If you start to run out of thread mid-pattern, stop and add a new thread. Weave-in the thread tails when you finish your design.

    Beads

    The pattern uses the following size 11/0 Miyuki Delica cylinder seed beads. The quantities are close estimates for a bracelet band that is seven inches long (not including the clasp):

    • 2.7 grams of sparkling lined aqua fresco mix; Bead I.D. number DB0984 (A)
    • 2.7 grams of silver lined light moss opal; DB1454 (B)
    • 1.8 grams of silver lined pink mist; DB1203 (C)
    • 2.6 grams of goldenrod lined topaz AB; DB0272 (D)
    • 0.8 grams of metallic brown iris; DB0007 (E)

    I purchased all of these colors online through Caravan Beads. If you have difficulty finding a color, feel free to substitute a similar color of your choice. (Colors are sometimes discontinued by the manufacturer.)

    Beading Supplies

    As with any flat peyote stitch pattern, you'll need your kit of essential beadweaving supplies. I used size D Nymo beading thread, but you can use any beading thread that is equivalent to size D or 6-pound test. I also used a size 10 beading needle.

    If you prefer to use a word chart, rather than a graph pattern, please use the following bead key, instead of the key on the previous page.

    Bead Key

    • 1 = goldenrod lined topaz AB; Bead I.D. number DB0272
    • 2 = silver lined light moss opal; DB1454
    • 3 = silver lined pink mist; DB1203
    • 4 = sparkling lined aqua fresco mix; DB0984
    • 5 = metallic brown iris; DB0007

    Word Chart

    The word chart begins in the lower left corner of the pattern. The letters in parentheses refer to which direction you should stitch a...MORE given row, with R meaning "right," and L meaning "left." Each number in parentheses is the quantity of a given color to stitch (one bead at a time) within the row, and the number immediately following each quantity is the bead key number for that color (see above).
