This may seem silly but I've tried my hand at peyote pattern drafting on a blank peyote graph and I let the drop mess with my head. I usually draft in straight lines and the drops throw me off guard.

Do you draw your shapes on the graph then color them in? Do you just scribble on the graph paper with colored pencils? Gahhhhh! I want to try this so bad but it makes me want to pull my hair out.  Embarrassed

Hope you get some answers soon Gail coz I'd love to know too as I want to make a bracelet with a german shepherd  and one with a pomeranian. I can do peyote even count but haven't got a clue how to make a pattern Smiley

Here is a site that gives some answers for drafting peyote stitch patterns.   I hope it will be of help to you.

I use BeadTool when I'm at my computer.  I like it because it lets you change the colors of an area really easily.  It also tells you how many of each color you need.  It kind stinks how the free version doesn't have a save feature, but I just "print screen" and paste it into Paint.

When I'm other places, I just color on beading graph paper with what-ever I can find.  Pencils, pens, markers, or highlighters.  I like this one:

When in doubt, use more glue!
