Brick Stitch is a lesser used bead weaving technique, most often associated with Native American jewelry. However, it is an especially versatile stitch and is a good substitute for the Peyote Stitch -- especially when you want to create shapes like leaves or butterflies. We learn how to start the brick stitch pattern, and how to start and finish each row. We discuss what projects work well with Brick Stitch, and what ones do not. We make a stitch sampler with a ladder-stitch foundation row, 3 squared off rows, and finished with an 8-row triangle shape.
