Right Angle Weave stitch (RAW) is fun and has many applications. Performing the stitch with different size beads is often called Modified Right Angle Weave (MRAW) and adds lots of definition and new design possibilities.
This pattern shows how to use graduated size beads in a RAW set-up to achieve a straight band bracelet using the MRAW technique. This pattern is written for someone with a little bead stitching/pattern reading experience – an Advanced Beginner, who has stitched before, but may not be proficient with RAW. A beader can take these techniques and apply them to create many different designs of their own and a few examples are shown or inspiration.
