Subject: Technique Tuesday - Beads Gone Wild- Herringbone

Hello fellow beaders,

Its Technique Tuesday and today I'd like to show some samples of Herringbone! Like most stitches there is flat, circular, and tubular. It can be one or more beads high, you can use all the same size and type of bead, or you can mix the beads. You can increase, and decrease, and mix it with other stitches. At first when doing this stitch it takes some time to get used to the way it stitches up. The top is always a little open. It is a flexible stitch unless worked with some variations that will tighten it up. Lot's of fun to be had with this stitch! I've shown quite a few samples of different herringbone kits, using some or all herringbone. While this isn't all the kits we have using herringbone it's a great representation.
