St Petersburg Chain
St Petersburg chain is easy, but looks fancy.
Step 1 is starts with a stop bead and a yard or more of Fireline or your favorite thread.
Add 6 beads in your main color
Step 2 pass the needle back through Beads # 3 and 4.
Step 2A Pull tight, note it looks like a little flag.
Step3 Add a contrast bead and go back down through Bead # 4, 3 and 2
Step 4 Add a contrast bead and go up through Bead #5 and 6, - the outer edge of that little flag
Step 5 Now for the repeats - Bead 5 and 6 become #1 and 2 in each repeat.
Add 4 beads - You now have 6 beads as in Step 1 Photo - Repeat Steps 2 - 4 again until you reach desired length.
