Crochet Beads and Holes Pattern
Bead stitch = Work dc in indicated stitch, [yo, working around the dc post just made pull up a loop] 3 times, yo and pull through the next 6 loops on the hook. This leaves 2 loops on the hook. Yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops. The bead stitch has the width of 2 stitches.
The quantity of sts is multiple 24 + 2.

2nd row: Ch 2 (doesn’t count as a stitch), ch 2 (counts as 2 st), skip 2, [bead st (counts as 2 sts), ch 1, skip 2] 7 times, dc in the last st, turn;
3rd row: Ch 2, 2 dc in the ch-2 space, [dc in the top of the bead st, 2 dc in the ch-1 space] 7 times, dc in the 2nd ch, turn.
