I’m not a huge fan of flat peyote as a structural stitch. I mean, it makes nice patterns, gorgeous patterns, but it doesn’t strike me as a very sturdy way to connect flatwork.
But for closed forms? Damn! It’s brilliant. Especially when there is no exposed thread.
Having explored the circular peyote triangle a bit, I have enhanced appreciation of the cool connected pieces that Jean Power makes. They are sewn with Nymo, are flexy and strong and sleek, and they’ve been overhandled for a decade and are still looking tight. I am in love with the form, and her technique.
I’ve got some Aikos on the way to the house, a gift from my friend Marianne, and I am seriously looking forward to playing with them.
