Odd Count Peyote Tutorial – The Odds are in Your Favor

Bracelet "Confetti Fun"

If you’ve been trying to find an odd count peyote tutorial with some cool projects, sit tight — I’ve got something for you!  But before we talk about the projects, let’s talk about odd count peyote versus even count.

Even count peyote is a beadweaving stitch that is usually one of the very first that people learn, when getting into beading.  It’s easy and there are no funky “extra steps” like you might see in square stitch or right angle weave.  No doubt about it, even count is straightforward.  But there’s a problem — you can’t make a project with a centered design.

Odd count peyote does allow a centered design, and gives you greater freedom of design.  The problem?  On odd-number rows, there is a funky turn that can be frustrating to learn (but easy once you’ve mastered it).

(Actually, there’s an easy way to do that turn — more about that in a minute.)
