Aha! we used to play that game. With nine of us in the family it was quite fun.

With seven kids, Mom had to find something to keep us busy on rainy days.

I have tried to put the hump into my lane stitch and it just looks jumbled. I notice that your lane stitch has the rows more evenly spaced than mine. I have been studying your picture and realize I put my rows too close together -- so instead of getting the hump in there it is just crowded and uneven looking.

I still need to locate my notes I took for the lane stitch class of 3 years ago. I recall with size 11/o that the lanes are 9mm wide and use 11 beads...

Let me measure & count on my Sioux Star project. That will answer the questions.

Forgot to measure last night... but the picture of the Sioux Star reveals nine (9) 11/o beads & that has to make it 11mm wide rows. Sorry to keep you hanging. I remember that 11 & 9 were the key numbers. Size 11/o beads is a given but # of beads & width vs 9 and 11... hmmm...

I apologize for the quality of this picture -- but, maybe you can see what I mean. I think the lanes are too close together. What do you think?



I have 8 beads in each lane.

I meant 8 beads in each row. Now that I study the picture, I see that both the lanes and the rows are too crowded.

Will have to look at picture tonight. Office computer system doesn't permit pictures from shared websites (we get the red x in the box). Usually you would add one bead onto a string otf them that is exactly the width of your row. This is where you might have to adjust lane width depending on your project & the beads.

As I worked the lanes on the military ribbons, I found that the various colors of 'same sized' beads (16/o in my case) beads varied in actual size. This produced a very distinctive antique look to the final result. I'm glad it looked that way, instead of resembling a perfect loom strip.

Rows - lanes. It can be confusing.

I looked in David Dean's book, Beading In The Native American Tradition, and your lane stitch does look antique. Very nice.

c. 1870's lane stitch:
