I have a pattern that is diagonal weave peyote stitch, dont know how to do it, is there a easy way to start, cant seem to find much online about it, I know once I get going I will be ok, but so far cant seem to grasp it. any help out there, thanks in advance.
I am not sure I understand what it is that you are trying to do. Is it a St. Petersburg stitch? Can you give us an example of what it is? I really would love to help but I for one need more information.
Can you show us a picture? There are a few things that could be called diagonal peyote - if you google the term, you should find the type you mean.
Ok. the closest I can come to describing this stitch , its a pattern for a christmas ball cover and when its hanging on the ball , looking at it , it looks like the letter W. The pattern calls it a diagonal peyote stitch, but I cant seem to find too much info on it at all, thanks for your help
The only thing I found online about this stitch is at Squidoo.com. and type in diagonal peyote stitch and it shows a necklace made with this stitch, maybe you could look at that , it gives directions there , but still cant get it, hope you can help me. thanks
I think that might be more like bead netting, which is similar to peyote stitch (think of peyote like 1-bead netting). If you do a search for that you may have better luck. In the Readers Showcase section there are a couple of recent posts about beaded ornament covers that use netting so you might have a look and see if it's the same thing.

I found this tutorial. I think this is what you are needing, or I hope it is.
I've seen instructions that call for "diagonal peyote" for bezeling a cabochon; but I think that's probably something of a misnomer. Like Sue mentioned (and gave a link to) I think it's really a St. Petersburg stitch variation. At least when I've looked at instructions for "diagonal Peyote" it really does seem to be good old St. Petes. Most people consider it to be one of the more difficult stitches to learn, but I personally found it fairly simple once I got going. Sue's link again, is a good one.
Russian leaves can be done in both diagonal peyote and St Petersburg stitch.
Here is a diagonal peyote leaf from a Russian site . She calls it Oblique Peyote. Just diagrams but it is pretty clear:
Your ornament patterns sounds gorgeous. Can you tell us where you bought it? I'd love to see it.
I have been searching for the same (Ithink) diagonal (zipzag) peyote stitch for several days now. I have borrowed a pic from Louise Hill Designs collection showing the exact stitch I am trying to find. I think it mostly because I don't know what to call it that I found it difficult to find.
If anyone can tell me an easier or just any way to make this stitch, I would be most grateful.
I hope this helps the other young lady who was looking for the same thing.
Thanx and God Bless
After close examination of this necklace, I think that necklace could have been done with a brick stitch. I think it would be easy to do in brick, a little more challenging in peyote.
When I have time later tonight I will try and replicate the stitch in brick. I'll post here the results from my test.
If you can get hold of a copy, Carol Cypher's book, Mastering Beadwork, has a tutorial on diagonal peyote stitch. According to the instructions, you alternate between starting a row with an increase and stopping same row 1 bead short, and doing a normal row of peyote, starting with an 11/0 seed bead and finishing the row with 8/0 beads.
Beth Stone's book "Seed Bead Stitching" has a section (page 20) on diagonal peyote. Lots of illustrations, too.
you may be refering to my ornament cover pattern called "Grace" .pattern discribes each step with diagrams
