Tubular twisted herringbone stitch…

There is a video on this design on YouTube but its really long and data consuming. I bet if you follow the steps here well. You would get it in no time.

Materials Needed:
In this tutorial, I made use of:

Tubular twisted Herringbone stitch

1. Needle (You need just one)
2. Fishing line (Please and please get the 0.25fl, anything bigger and you will break alot of needles. I know the wahala I faced while making this tutorial because I used 0.35)
3. 3 different colors of size2 seed bead (I used 2colors; deep red and orange. I’m advising you to use 3 so you can avoid getting confused)
4. Bead clasp
5. Stoppers (I like to finish my work without stoppers to avoid the rough look but for the sake of the tutorial. I
used em’)..

This is what the Tubular twisted Herringbone stitch looks like

Tubular twisted Herringbone stitch

Let’s get started:

String on two beads of the first color you are using. Let’s assume you are using teal green(TG), mint blue(MB) and black(Bb). String on two TG and pass them down to the end of the fishing line(FL), leaving about 2cm of FL. Pass your needle through the first bead. This is done to hold the beads together and in a vertical position. After coming out from the first bead, pass the needle back into the second bead (Your needle should be facing down).

Go back into the first bead, Your needle should be facing upwards. We are doing this to hold our beads in place and tightly. Remember you didn’t knot the Fl, this is also the reason why I advised the use of 0.25.
After coming out of the first bead, go back into the second bead. Your needle should be facing downwards. Pick up one bead of the next color, say MintBlue(MB) and pass your needle back into the second bead with your needle facing downwards.Tubular twisted herringbone stitchTubular twisted herringbone stitchIt should look like this afterwards…

Good…Now go back into the second bead i.e the second teal green(TG) bead, your needle should face downwards as opposed to the last step where your needle faced upwards. Done?! Now go back in through the third bead with your needle facing upwards. Remember we are doing this to secure the beads in a vertical postion.

Like what we did in the previous steps, pass your needle into the newly added bead with your needle facing downwards.
