The decrease brick stitch is made by decreasing the number of beads in each new row, resulting in a pointed shape.For a PDF Diagram of Brick Stitch techniques, click here.
Once you have made a base row using the ladder stitch, add two beads and move the needle under the exposed loop between the second and third base row beads, moving from back to front.
Once you reach the end of a row, go back through the last bead. Make sure your thread is exiting out of the top of your last bead. Pick up two beads and then move the needle under the exposed loop between the second and third base row beads, moving from back to front, just as you did in step one. Then repeat steps 2, 3, 4 and 5. You may find it easier to constantly turn the pattern so you are always working from right to left.
The increase brick stitch works the opposite of the decrease by increasing the number of beads on the end of the row, resulting in an even pattern.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
