Leave a 6 tail. String 4 white, 1 black, 1 white, 20 black, 1 white, 1 black, and 4 white. String 1 additional white bead. PT the last white bead previously strung. Work the first two rows as described in the instructions on page 3.Continue by following the chart, working in herringbone weave. Finish by pass-ing the thread through the last two and the first two rows in square stitch to shore them up. Trim working thread and tail close to work. y Herringbone Weave Coaster  5 oz. size 5˚ white pony beads2 oz. size 5˚ black pony beads2 oz. size 5˚ gunmetal pony beadsBlack Nymo “D” threadSize 12 beading needleScissors MATERIALSNOTIONS Herringbone Stitch Begin with a foundation row of even-count ladder stitch. String 2 beads, pass down through the second-to-last bead in the ladder, and up through the next bead. String 2 beads, pass down the next bead and then up through the following. Repeat to the end of the row. To end the row, pass back through the last bead strung. To begin the next row, string 2 beads and pass down through the second-to-last bead of the previous row and up through the following bead. Repeat, stringing 2 beads per stitch and passing down then up through 2 beads of the previous row. The 2-bead stitch will cause the beads to angle-up in each column, like a herringbone fabric.  Visit InterweaveStore.com/jewelryprojects for more great projects! publishers of Beadwork magazine…join the online beading community at BeadingDaily.com page 3 Herringbone Weave Coaster srcinally published in Beadwork,  Winter 1998. ©Interweave Press, LLC Not to be reprinted. All rights reserved   T his weave is often found in Ndebele beadwork. The herringbone stitches or pattern creates a tough fabric. It’s a tricky stitch, but once you get the knack, it can produce wonderful geometric shapes.Use large-sized beads, such as pony beads, when you are learning. It also helps to use a thread and needle that will go through the beads several times. Alternate rows of light and dark beads to help you understand the mechanics of the stitch. Maintain a steady tension throughout.If you’d like to read further, there are really clear explanations of this stitch in Jeannette Cook and Vicki Star’s Beady Eyed Women’s Guide to Exquisite Beadwork: An Off-Loom Bead Weaving Primer   (San Diego, Califor-nia: Beady Eyed Women Enterprises, 1996), as well as in Virginia Blakelock’s Those Bad, Bad Beads!   (Wilsonville, Oregon: Virginia L. Blakelock, 1990).TO BEGINString 1 light, 2 dark, 2 light, 2 dark, 2 light, 2 dark, 2 light, 2 dark, and 1 light bead (16 beads total). Leave a 6 tail.The first row you work creates Rows 1–3. Rows 1–3:  String 1 dark-colored bead. PBT the last light bead strung. Skipping 2 dark beads, PT the next light bead from the end. String 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. Skip 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. String 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. Skip 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. String 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. Skip 2 dark beads. PT the last light bead. Row 4:  String 1 dark and 1 light bead. PBT the dark bead just strung. *PT the first bead of the next 2-bead set. String 2 light beads. PT the next dark bead. Rep from * until you have reached the end of the row. Row 5:  Turn work over. String 1 light bead and 1 dark bead. PBT the light bead just strung. *PT the first bead of the next 2-bead set. String 2 dark beads. PT the next light bead. Rep from * until you have reached the end of the row.Continue working the stitch in this alternating pat-tern until the work is the desired height.The top and bottom rows may seem jumbled. Cor-rect this by running a thread through those rows in loose square stitch to tighten. y Herringbone Weave The first row that you work in herringbone actually creates Rows 1–3. To ease your way as you work these rows (and avoid spilled beads), hold the piece firmly between the thumb and forefinger of your nonworking hand with the tail thread coiled around your little finger.   The herringbone pattern becomes apparent after working the fourth row.
