Base stitch: Peyote
Would you like to learn the peyote stitch on a reasonably-sized project? A ring is perfect! The Spinning Daisies tutorial shows you how to stitch rings in the even count peyote stitch (the easiest one) in a single color, variegated colors, and with polka dots (so you’ll also learn how to read a simple chart). Stitching a glass flower on top turns a simple beaded band into a cute accessory. The flower spins freely, giving you something to fidget with.
