Looks like Brick and is sometimes called the "Other" Brick stitch. Beads are woven together by weaving through the beads (not the loops of thread). A BRICK graph page is turned 90 degrees (Landscape vs Portrait). Beads are woven together by weaving through beads.

Color graphs set up for Brick can be stitched using the Comanche Stitch (the weaving technique is different not the graph layout). Brick or Comanche color graphs can be rotated 90 degrees and the pattern can then stitched using the Peyote Stitch. Peyote graphs can be rotated 90 degrees and the Brick stitch can be used. Word Charts/Word Maps can not be adjusted in the same manner. Word Maps/Word charts are words/text describing which and how many beads to pick up when using a specific stitch.
