OK . . . just one more idea.

I'm working on the tube (all one size). Looks like it would start with 18 for the starting row (so you end up with 9 across). I'm thinking maybe 8-9 beads high (length twice the width).

I'm thinking now that the "ears" should be brick stitched along the edges of the finished piece.

I'm determined now.

I'll be eager to see how other beaders tackle this challenge.

p.s. There are a gazillion good tutes for tubular peyote. I've appended one below.

p.s. It would be cool to post a tutorial when we figure out how to make this happen.

Heading to bed now, but thought I'd let you know that the above idea works.

I've made one segment, and it looks pretty much identical to the picture.

I did one flat piece of peyote starting with 18 beads (so ends up 9 / row). I left a long tail (maybe 8 - 12"). When it was about 6 beads high (I should've counted, but that's approximately right), I bricked stitched the "ear" on the left hand end. I used the tail to stitch an identical "ear" on the right hand end. Then I zipped it up, and VOILA!

I'll do one with better beads tomorrow so you can see it more clearly, and can take some pics along the way as a makeshift tutorial.

For now, here's a pic of what I've got. I put a toothpick in the tube so you could get a better idea of size.



Sorry for the lousy pic. Have no idea how to operate hubby's cam properly.

After weaving 3 of the above together, I got this:



Voila!

Sculptural Peyote Triangle: A Brief Tutorial

This tutorial assumes the reader has the following skills:
  • Flat, even count peyote stitch
  • Zipping up peyote stitch
  • Brick stitch

A tutorial for the first two skills can be found here: http://www.beadandbutton.com/How%20To/Basics/Peyote%20Stitch/2006/08/~/media/import/files/pdf/9/3/0/peyotebasics.ashx . A tutorial for the third skill (i.e., brick stitch) can be found here: http://www.beadandbutton.com/en/How%20To/Basics/Brick%20Stitch/2006/08/Brick%20stitch%20basics.aspx

Step 1 (pictured below): Leaving at least an 18" long tail, create a flat peyote strip 9 beads high (start with 18 beads on needle for rows 1 and 2, 19th begins row 3) by 6 beads wide. Be certain there are 6 beads on both edges.



Step 2 (pictured below): Create an "ear" (i.e., a triangular tip to your peyote strip) in brick stitch, beginning where your thread is exiting from your last step. Use traditional brick stitch which naturally decreases by 1 for each row. Your final tip bead will sit perpendicular to the others. For those using the brick stitch tutorial referenced above, the edge of your peyote strip serves as your beginning "ladder".




Step 3 (pictured below): Using the tail from step 1, create another "ear" on the bottom of your peyote strip identical to the one you created in step 2



Step 4 (pictured below): Using the tail thread, weave down your "ear" until you reach the first bead of the peyote stitched piece (6th bead from top). Starting there, "zip up" your peyote tube. Stop "zipping up" when you reach the beginning of the top "ear". Your goal in this step is to create a hollow tube with an open "ear" on both ends. Do not cut your thread.



Step 5: Repeat steps 1 - 4 to create two additional "legs" for your triangle, for a total of 3.


Step 6 (pictured below): In steps 6 and 7, you will "marry" the ears of two of the "legs" you have created. To begin, stitch together the tips of the "ears" of two of the legs. These tips will be lying perpendicular to the rest of the "ear".



Step 7 (pictured below): The final step is to "marry" the remainder of the "ears" to one another. Keep in mind that you must carry out this step ON BOTH SIDES of the "ears" at each joint of your triangle. Simply stitch them together so they meet side by side.

My method (which is likely not the most efficient), was to begin with the 2nd bead from the top of Ear1 (thread heading DOWN that bead / away from tip of ear). I then stitch UP the 2nd bead from the top of Ear2. Finally, I stitch DOWN through both the 2nd and 3rd beads from the top of Ear1. Continue in like manner until you reach the beginning of the tube.




The finished triangle will look something like this:

Interesting.

Check out p. 36 of this month's Bead and Button magazine (i.e., February 2011 Issue 101).

You may notice a few similarities . . .

Hopefully someone can give me a little help. The only thing that is throwing me off on this tutorial is the brick stitch on the ends to get the triangular point. Mine is not looking like it should, the end is square. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? How many rows of brick stitch are there? Is it decreased to the one bead (tip) and then finished with a square stitch?
I would appreciate some help.
Thanks,
Sharon

Thanks,
