Hi this is Megan with Beadaholique.com and I'm going to show you How to Do Vertical Netting Stitch in Bead Weaving
and you're going to start
usually with a foundation
row. So you're gonna have a different type of the bead weaving that you used
and then
you're gonna work your netting stitch off of that. So I just have a couple of rows of
square stitch
you can use
any kind of stitch that you want
that has the beads
running with the holes
facing horizontally so you can run your needle through it this way
so
the vertical netting stitch
works vertically in columns
across your work
so what you need to do is go on your
foundation row here
and you're going to
weave around until your needle and thread are of coming out of the bead you wanna
start with
and you're going to have
linked beads
in this stitch and I'm using these
dark cobalt blue beads for link beads and then you're going to have your
regular beads that make up the netting part. I'm using these turquoise
beads for that
so I'm going to do a five bead Vertical Netting
which means that I have
five beads per
segment
first you want to start with a link bead
and then you're going to put on the five beads for your segment which will
include
two beads, one link bead
and two more beads
and now for the first row you're just going to
add a link bead
and then
add five more
beads for this segment
two beads, one link bead, two beads
add a link bead
and another five bead segment
with the Vertical Netting
how long you make
this first row will determine
the length this way in your work
and then go ahead and
stop there
I got one extra bead on there
so
this is going to be your first row and then your first
well its a column but
in bead weaving we still call it a row even if it's going that way
next we're gonna do a turning chain by
grabbing a link bead
and
another
five bead segment
and this is going to be where your work turns back up
so now you want to skip
the first three link beads
and bring your needle into the forth
and then you're going to grab
a five bead segment
skip the next link bead
go in through the second
one more five bead segment
you going to skip the next link bead and go into
the second which is the first link bead that you added up here
and you wanna pull it tight but not too tight. You don't want to pucker
and now you're going to go into your foundation row and you're going to go
over
as many beads as you like
to start your next
column, the next row
and
how wide
you space them apart will
change
how spread out your Netting Stitch is. So if it looks more
vertical lines or if it looks more like a squared lattice
I'm just going to use step four beads for now. It's up to you
and your esthetic
and how you like it to look
For
the rest of the segment the rest of the rows the rest of the
columns you'll start with a link bead
you're going to put on
the two beads that go before the next link bead
you just need
half because then you're going to grab
this
second link bead
on the first section there
and then get
another group of five
skip
the first link bead and go through the second
and then
another group of five
skip the next link and bead go through
the second one
and now you're gonna do
our turning chain
you're gonna grab
two of your beads and one link bead
and then
grab
another group of five beads
skip
the first three link beads and go through the forth
makes a little
turning chain and you're just gonna continue
working along
getting a group of five
going through the
second link bead
and going back up through that link bead skipping over, just repeat the
exact same process
along with the whole
width of your piece
and that's How to Do Vertical Netting Stitch in Bead Weaving
