Adventures in RAW

I've been working in right angle weave lately.  This is a stitch I have always respected, but never really loved ... until now.  I'm noticing that the stitch is relatively quick and it embellishes so nicely!

Crystals fit perfectly inside the openings:

And the pearls .. yum.

And today, I saw this post from Gwen Fisher from gwenbeads.  She created a tutorial for twisted cubic right angle weave.  Yep, you heard right twisted cubic right angle weave.  I had to do a double take.

Doesn't that look like fun?  I am so excited.  I am almost done with my current project, so I may be giving this a go tonight.  And if you want the pattern, you can get it in Gwen's shop.

Happy beading.


  1. Thank you so much for linking to my new tutorial. You're right about RAW in that it's a great stitch to embellish, probably the best stitch to embellish. The same is true for the twisted version. I don't always like the fact that it can be slow to weave, but I think its versatility makes it worth the effort. Thanks again.

  2. I love RAW! It was really hard for me at first but one day something clicked and now I can stitch it up without to much hair pulling lol. Thanks for the link I will check her out. Are you still playing SWTOR? We are here the story is fantastic!

  3. I don't mind RAW but do find it a bit repetitive after a while... you know the "I could do this in my sleep" kind of repetitive. I love the look of your thinks I know what it might be!!
