Single Needle Right Angle Weave (RAW): Starting the Next Row (odd count)

This page is a continuation of our Single Needle Right Angle Weave technique tutorial.

There are four sections to this tutorial: Making a base row - Starting a new row - Increasing Stitches - Decreasing Stitches

At this point, you should have a base row made, except for the last stitch:

The threading of the last stitch in the base row is dependent on the number of stitches in the base row. The number of stitches is the number of vertical beads in the first row. For example, the picture above shows 5 stitches.

Once the base row is completed, the stitch is the same for even and odd count pieces. Only the transistions at the ends of the row are different.

Steps for Adding a New Row:

These instructions for this step assume you have an Odd Count of stitches. If you have an even count of stitches, continue here.
  
1. For a row with an odd number of stitches, after you add the three beads on the last stitch, pass the needle through only the last of the added beads so that the thread exits the top of the last stitch.
  
2.Add three more beads to your thread...
  
3. ... then pass the needle through the top bead of the last stitch of the first row.
  
4. Pass the thread again through all three of the newly added beads, exiting the bottom of the third bead.

Continue through the top bead of the next stitch of the previous row. This completes the first stitch of the second row.

  
5. Add two more beads to the thread, then pass the needle through the last horizontal bead of the previous stitch.

Continue through the top bead of the next stitch in the previous row, and back through the first of the two beads you just added. The thread will now exit up through the hole of this first bead.

  
6. Add two beads, and continuing with the figure 8 style weaving, thread the needle through the top bead of the next stitch of the previous row...
  
7. ... then back up through the horizontal bead of the previous stitch, and back through the two newly added beads.

Continue threading through the top bead of the next stitch of the previous row.

  
8. You'll notice at this point, the thread is in the same position as at the end of Step 4. Pick up two more beads, and repeat steps 5 and 6 until the row is finished.
