Weave "Herringbone"

This method of weaving is used more than 200 years the women of the tribe Ndebele in South Africa (sorry, Russian name of this tribe I do not know :) bead cloth made using this technique, reminiscent of a Herringbone pattern:

I have not seen the description of this method of weaving beaded in Russian literature (so it's exclusive! :))), the name "Christmas Tree" was invented, as the pattern really resembles a Christmas tree. And it's very similar to knitting a painting :)

To start nizamie, you need to get on a thread an even number of beads. You can take a number of beads divisible by 4 and can - 2. The canvas that you started with the number of beads divisible by 4, the execution will be different from the track, the number of beads which are divisible only by 2. To start, try to weave a little piece, to understand how this technique works and what is different beginning with 16 beads from start with 10 beads.

The number of beads in the first row is a multiple of 4
Type in the thread number of beads that is divisible by 4 (e.g. 16 beads) - it will be the first and second horizontal rows.

Unfold and weave the third row. String on the needle bead 17 and pass through bead 16 in the opposite direction. Skip 2 beads and pass the needle into the bead 13. String 2 beads and pass needle through bead 12. Keep doing this until you reach the edge of the canvas:

To finish a row and turn the dial the beads 24 and 25, pass back through bead 24. Then pass the needle through bead 23, dial the beads 26 and 27, pass through 22 and 21 beads. Continue to weave until you reach the desired length of the web.

The number of beads in the first row is a multiple of 2
Type in the thread number of beads that is divisible by 2 (but not 4), for example, 10. It will be ranks 1 and 2. To make the turn and start the third row, string on the needle bead 11 and pass back through bead 10. string the beads 12, 13, 14 and 15 in the same way as described above. To begin the fourth row, pass the needle up through bead 15, type 16 and 17 beads and pass through bead 14. Continue to weave until you reach the desired length:

Now you can understand the differences between these two ways of threading "the Tree" - the first with two edges we recruit 1 bead, and in the second method, 1 bead only typed with one hand, and on the other 2 beads. I.e. in the first method of weaving all the "Christmas Trees" are integers, while the second edge will always be other "Christmas Trees" :)
Since the beads in this method of weaving are placed on straight lines, to create patterns on the canvas, "Christmas Tree" you can use the schema for woven fabrics.
