1. Pick Up the First Three Beads
On a comfortable length of thread (no longer than 5 feet), pick up 3 beads.
2. Stitch the Beads Together
Pass needle back through the first bead strung, moving in the direction of the tail.
3. Tighten Your Beads and Thread
Pull snugly so all three beads line up together.
4. Add the Next Bead
Pick up a bead and pass needle back down through the bead just added.
5. Continue to Stitch
Continue to add beads in this manner until you have two rows of 10 beads each. You are now in a position to pick up two beads and begin stitching in brick stitch.
