St. Petersburg Chain
These St Petersburg chain instructions demonstrate how strong and quick the beadwork is.
St Petersburg Chain
Named for its Russian origins, St Petersburg stitch is more obscure than its popular cousins, but it is nevertheless a fast and simple method of creating sturdy straps of beads. There is also a popular variation called double St Petersburg chain.
The unusual and striking pattern makes this stitch a delightful break from routine. With practice, watch it turn into a beautiful fringed lariat or a classic V-shape.
