Lola and I decided it was time to teach a new beading technique! Peyote Stitch! Pass the Peyote starts with four I-cord strands that are integrated into a slide clasp. Odd count peyote stitch beads are slid onto the I-cords before they are attached to the other side of the clasp.
The pattern includes tutorials for attaching the clasp, working I-cord (so easy!) and making Peyote Stitch beads! Enjoy!!!
Kits for Pass the Peyote were sent as May's shipment for Lola’s Choice (Laura's super fun small knitted kit club).
You can also purchase the pattern as a pdf and gather your own supplies to make Pass the Peyote.
