How to start Peyote Stitch designs

Tristakins 5/7/2016 10:13 am 2007

So, I know how to do simple things like a heart or a bow. But I want to do words. Do you start out the same way as you would a cuff and work around(if that makes any sense)? Or is there a specific way of starting? Thanks for any and all answers in advance. <3
