Right Angle Weave

There are two types of right-angle weave that produce the same finished beadwork. Cross-needle weaving, or double-needle right-angle weave, is made using two needles on opposite ends of the same length of beading thread. Single-needle right-angle weave passes through the beads in alternating circular patterns.
