Bead Stitch

by M. J. Joachim

Foundation: Make an even number of stitches

Step 1: Make 1 single crochet in 2nd chain from hook, and in each chain across row

Step 2: Chain 3, turn

Step 3: Make 1 double crochet in next stitch, counting your first chain 3 as your first dc

Step 4: Make 1 bead stitch around the last dc you made:

Bead Stitch
a. yarn over, wrap around double crochet (like a front post dc stitch)

b. yarn over, draw up a loop

Repeat Steps a & b (2 more times)

c. yarn over, pull through first 6 loops on hook, leaving 2 loops on hook

d. yarn over, draw through last 2 loops on hook

Continue with pattern...

Step 5: Make 1 single crochet in next stitch

Step 6: Chain 1, turn; make 1 single crochet in next stitch

Step 7: Make 1 single crochet in next single crochet, skipping bead stitch in between; make 1 single crochet in following stitch

Repeat Step 7 across row, ending with 1 single crochet in top of turning chain

Repeat Steps 2 - 7 for pattern

I’m so glad you stopped in for a visit today. Wishing you every success in all your crocheting projects!
