Peyote Alphabet Pattern

I've had a few requests for a peyote alphabet, and made this one up, it's 9 beads tall by 7 beads wide. I hope you find it helpful!
Since it is on an odd count, it will line up best if you space the letters an odd number of beads apart. For the graph I spaced them one bead apart.
It's vertically oriented unlike my bead font. For straps and bracelets I'd suggest using a horizontally oriented alphabet.



This upper and lower case alphabet can be used to personalize patterns. It will also work well for adding a sentiment to things you stitch around. It's 9 beads tall by 7 beads wide, and will work with seed beads as well, the letters will just look more narrow.

I'll probably use this alphabet on things like beaded bottles, but I was thinking wouldn't a sampler done in peyote look very pretty? It would work well on ornaments, or to peyote stitch a band around a bottle or candle holder as a wedding present.

I have a few other alphabet patterns on my personal page, including a right angle weave alphabet and one in brick stitch that works well for tie tacks.

This square stitch alphabet that's pretty tiny can also be used in loom projects and even for knitting.

I'd love to see pictures of things you make using this alphabet.

I charted two alphabets that would work well for knitters or loom or square stitch beading, and put them in a Kindle book you can buy from Amazon. One is very small, and has lots of extra characters. The other one is a bigger, and would work well for monograms or for it's original use, knitting scarves.
