St. Petersburg Chain Stitch, How-To
String on a tension bead (for which I've used a light green size 8). String 2 olive beads, 1 berry bead, and 2 olive beads.
Pass through all 4 of the olive beads again, skipping the berry bead altogether. This creates a square of beads with a little picot at one end.
String 1 berry bead; pass through the third and fourth olive beads added in Step 3, then pull tight.
Repeat Steps 3 - 5 to desired length.
