I am  waiting with baited breathe to learn more about the (90 degree off loom Loomliss stitch.)  Is there anything I can do to help with the tutorial? I have been beading as long as I can remember.  mostly  traditional stuff.  If you email me the instructions, I will give it a try. I have  34 inch Custom design Belt to get done ASAP. I think I will start it, with Fireline and a Square Stitch.

You idea is very interesting.

About the only things the two stitches share in common are that both are non-alternating and appear similar to loom work.  'Square' stitch is worked in the same direction as loom work; beads are oriented with the holes open left and right (on their sides).  In '90 Degree Off-Loom' stitch, the beads are oriented with the holes top and bottom (on their ends).  Take a piece of loom work and turn it on its side to the left -- hence the name '90 Degree Off-Loom'.

so, if I understand the paragraph above. The beads are added 2 at a time like a four lane Highway.(four rows of beads) when you get to the other side, then the beadwork is flipped over and you bead 2 beads at a time, going back accross the four lanes of the Beadwork..(like a Herrinbone stitch without the seperation, but  joining each set of two beads to the previously added two beads.??

This would look like loom work.

humm, must try that...

Hi Gypsy Mary,

I'm not sure that would work for odd number stitches.  Sorry to hear that the other stitch wasn't what it appeared to be.  Square stitch should work for your piece.  When it's ready for distribution, I'll let you know.  Thanks for your interest.

The 90 Degree Off-Loom stitch instruction book is nearly complete (including proofed results of the first instruction document & the stitch, both versions of 90DO-L, and, later, a left-handed version will be available; under copyright).  Hope to have both books ready sometime later this year.  Thanks for your continued interest and patience.  ~ Ottercat

Still working on the rewrite (computers can be so testy!).  Between projects & computer problems, and the occasional 'eureka' moments, it's getting done.  Thanks for your continued interest (& patience).
