So What is Herringbone Stitch?
It's a popular beadweaving technique that has strong links to traditional African beadwork. Sometimes you'll find it's called Ndbele stitch, after the tribal region where it is most commonly used.

Modern Herringbone stitch can be worked flat or tubular to form a rope. When worked tubular it is a very flexible weave. Once comfortable using basic seed beads, you can begin to experiment with shaped beads for a varied look.
