Brick Stitch Tutorial with Alternate Start

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.
