Peyote ribbon lariat

If you've never done peyote stitch before, this thin, slinky lariat will make a satisfying first project. With each row being only two beads wide, you'll progress quickly, yet the final product is impressive. The dangles on the ends provide additional substance and flair.

For a smooth, flat ribbon, use Japanese cylinder beads, as shown here. Or make a lariat with a more textured surface by using Czech seed beads. This lariat is perfectly plain-all in one color -but if you'd prefer a pattern, by all means add one. Feel free to vary the number of stitches in your row, but stick with an even number of beads to keep your project as simple as possible.

Work a ribbon of two-bead-wide flat peyote 4-5 ft. (1.2-1.5m) long. Add six to eight dangles on each end. You can wear the necklace as a very long tied rope (it would also make a fun belt). Alternatively, double it and pass both ends through the fold at the front; or center it on the front of your neck, cross the ends behind your neck, and then tie them together in front.

0 Start with a 1'/,-2-yd. (1.4- 1.8m) length of single thread on a needle. Tie a stop bead about 6 in. (15cm) from the end (you'll take it off and weave the tail in later).

© String four cylinder beads for rows

1 and 2. Work in even-count flat peyote (see "Basics," p. 5) until about 4-6 in. (10-15cm) of thread remains.

© To add new thread, thread another needle with Nymo and weave it into the beadwork, making a few half-hitch knots as you go (see "Basics"). Exit the high bead at the edge with the needle pointing toward the ribbon and resume

peyote stitch. When you've worked several rows, weave in the tail of the previous thread, making a few half-hitch knots, the same way you started the new thread. Then trim both tails. © Keep adding new threads as needed until the ribbon is 4-5 ft. long. © To add the dangles, weave a 36-in. (,9m)-long doubled thread into the end of the ribbon and string 1-2 in. (2.5-5cm) of cylinder beads. String a pearl and a final cylinder bead. Go back up through the pearl and all the cylinder beads and exit the next bead on the end (photo). String a total of six to eight fringes of slightly different lengths. You can put two fringes in the same space between end beads. Then weave the thread into the ribbon and make a few half-hitch knots before clipping it close. Repeat at the other end. - Louise Malcolm
