Stitch Grids

Beadweaving can be a difficult job if you are using or creating new patterns. If you have the time and patience, a computer and a printer then you can make your designing a little easier by drawing you own stitch grids.
For those who wouldn't want to do this, we have already done it for you! Below are PDF's of the more popular stitch grids that should help you to design your beadweaving pattern.

 

Beadlooms

Each brick stitch row is off centre to the next, giving the impression of a brick wall. The rows are not numbered, we have left this up to you to do. This means you can start anywhere on the page.

The grid here is A4 size, the actual squares measure 3.5mm x 7mm and there are 61 squares (beads) across the page (in a row) and there are 46 rows down the length of the page.


Peyote Stitch Grid

You can do that if you wish but it's just as easy to click the image on the right. The rows are not numbered, we have left this up to you to do. This means you can start anywhere on the page.
