African Helix Stitch Video, Part 1
Item Id: VIDEO-0032 review 4 Review(s) Write a Review Write a Review


This stitch was a request, so I taught myself so that I could teach you! African Helix is a fun stitch that creates a tube-like structure. This week we will only learn the stitch. We will complete the bracelet in Part 2 of this series.

Tips and Tricks:
  • One tube of each seed bead color should be plenty for a bracelet, but if you want to extend this to necklace length, plan on getting 2 tubes of each color.

Rating Love this
I adore this stitch. I don't use a pencil, though. I use one of those rods that comes in a bag of stuffing. They are tapered on one end to make it easier to get your beads on and off. Keep up the amazing videos!

Excellent video! I would love it if you could demonstrate how to put the wide-eye needle on the thread. I'm a begginer, and just LOVE your videos Karla!

Rating Easy pattern even for a first try!
I worked this pattern on my first attempt without any problems. I like the fact that when you pull the thread tightly you will hear a click as it tightens. Keep up the good work on your videos Karla! You have clear, easy to follow videos making the complicated looking projects easy to complete.

Rating Fun but time consuming
I worked on this project on and off for 3 weeks. I used 10/0 because I couldn''''t find 11/0. I also used a regular sewing needle because I was impatient to start. It worked but the beads kept getting stuck over the eye. Eventually I finished and it turned out really fabulous. Now I have the right size beads and proper needle so it''''ll be much faster. Try it, you''''ll love it.
