What is the St. Petersburg Stitch?

The St. Petersburg stitch is a stunning chain stitch that you definitely need to try! Typically used to make bead chains, this design creates a series of slanted columns. This stitch is made of top and bottom turnings, creating the slanted effect. There are two common types of St. Petersburg stitches: single and double. Start with the single stitch: click here to learn how to make a single St. Petersburg stitch. Both of them are flexible, but the main difference is that the double St. Petersburg stitch connects a second chain connected to the middle beads. You can use this stitching technique with a variety of beads, so it’s very versatile.

This is very pretty. And the instructions are super easy. If I can understand them, anyone can. You could make this in different variations. All one color, two or three colors or like this one. I like that in a project. The capability to customize the item. Thank you for sharing this one.
