Crochet Stitch How-To: The Bead Stitch

Today’s crochet stitch pattern is an amazingly fun one. The Bead Stitch has the appearance of a stitch that’s been wrapped, and it creates a beautifully textured fabric. This would be perfect to use in a blanket or scarf to really show off the design of this stitch.
