About the Stitch
The bead stitch is a 2 row repeat of bead stitches and variations of single crochets to “enclose” the bead stitches. You may learn a few new techniques with this stitch as it’s very unique!
This is one of my favorite stitches I have learned because it was a little challenging but the outcome is amazing! The texture of this stitch is very pretty and eye catching.
