TOHO Logo Pattern – Odd Count Peyote Stitch

Team TOHO member, Rochelle Peterson of Bobby Bead created the cutest TOHO logo in an odd count peyote stitch! She kindly wanted to share the pattern with everyone else who might want to sport a little TOHO logo love! You can find this cute stitched logo on the back of the little Aiko beaded kimono seen here on Facebook where Rochelle shows us how to tie the obi.

Rochelle provided this cute photo of a mini Iwao wearing the logo! Click on the image to download the pattern PDF! If you have questions on the pattern, you can reach Rochelle at
