The Tribal Techniques project mixes two of our favorite tribal stitches - Ndebele from Africa and Comanche from the Native Americans (also known as Brick stitch). This is a fantastic way to explore design and exercise your skills with mixing bead proportions. We've updated the instructions to include techniques for inclusion of two-hole beads. The results are amazing!
It is helpful, but not essential, to have prior experience with both stitches, so why not give our Brick Stitch Stripes Bracelet and our Easiest Ndebele Bracelet projects a try? Or just put “Ndebele” or “Brick” in the search box for other projects with these techniques!
