Beaded Warped Square Peyote Stitch – How To

To make a beaded warped square in Peyote Stitch is very easy.  Especially if you know how to make a flat beaded square. In fact, a warped square is easier than a flat square! Technically speaking, we are using a combination of Peyote Stitch and Herringbone Stitch. The logic is: Peyote stitch for the flat surfaces; Herringbone stitch for increases. In a basic beaded warped square, you just do the herringbone stitch at the corners and peyote stitch for the sides.  That s it! Here is a graphical step-by-step.  Credit for the image goes to Contemporary Geometric Beadwork (Kate McKinnon s site). You can find the full document (.pdf file), tutorials, and beading basics at CGB Volume 1, Basics Section.
