Tubular peyote stitch is especially fun and I’ve found, creates a gorgeous pattern when you change the bead color you’re using in each round. This pattern from Beading Daily’s free Peyote Stitch Patterns eBook stuck out at me for its vivid colors, and for the increases and decreases throughout the peyote rope. It actually turns out to be much simpler than it looks though, because the amazing twist effect is achieved by using different sized seed beads. Once you get the hang of the spiraling stitches, you can have a peyote stitch bracelet made in no time!
