DID YOU KNOW?
Right-angle weave, also known as RAW, is one of the easiest jewelry making stitches to learn. Patterns are said to have this off-loom beading technique when beads are stitched together with thread only making right angle turns. This versatile stitch was given its name because of the way the beads like at right angles to one another.
Right-Angle weave can be woven with either one needle or two. With single needle right-angle weave, the thread path moves in a figure-eight pattern. When two needles are used, it is often called cross-weaving, and the threads cross each other along the center bead of each stitch as they head in opposite directions.
You can use many types or sizes of beads, as well as combinations of beads of different sizes and shapes to create different effects; common bead choices are seed beads and crystals. Right angle weave patterns can be used to make flat pieces or more dimensional figures. It has various variations, such as cubic right angle weave (CRAW). Examples of this stitching technique are found cultures around the world, from Africa to Asia to Europe.
