2017 Thursday Bead Post #27: Flat Spiral

Flat Spiral. I honestly dislike this stitch. I made a Flat Spiral bracelet I like using gumdrops and neon beads and still- no love for the stitch. It has floppy loops, it is difficult to keep the tension right and there are only so many times a bead can be passed through without breaking.

I know this is not like my traditional posts where I brag about the stitch, send readers to try it themselves and show how I do it. This is will most likely be the last Flat Spiral I do. I would rather spend my time brick stitching with 15's! I did go back and reinforce along the edge of my bracelet and connected the floppy loops.

If you really want to make your own Flat Spiral Google has the links to so many free tutorials!
