The Only List of Herringbone Stitch Projects You’ll Need

Herringbone stitch in beadwork is also known as Ndebele, drawing that name from the South African tribe that developed this beadweaving stitch. Herringbone stitch can be started using a ladder of seed beads in a manner similar to brick stitch, or it can be started using a more traditional method that is similar to flat peyote stitch. Herringbone stitch is an extremely versatile beadweaving stitch and can be done in flat, tubular and circular variations. Tubular herringbone stitch is a widely used method for creating intricate beaded ropes, and flat herringbone stitch can be shaped simply by using a variety of sizes of beads in the beadweaving.
