The Boxed Bead Stitch is a very clean take on the Bead Stitch with the traditional Bead Stitch literally boxed in with Single Crochets and Extended Single Crochets. I really love how this stitch turned out when I used it for my Boxed Bead Koozie pattern!

  1. Do you have a pattern for the blocked bead stitch. It seems to be different from the boxed bead stitch. Thank you. If you have pattern could you please email to [email protected]. Thank you

    1. Hello!

      I was not familiar with the Blocked Bead stitch but I did do some research and all I could find is from Bella Coco’s Blog. Her instructions are in UK terms but convert to be the same as the US instructions for the Boxed Bead Stitch. I do agree it looks slightly different but I think it could be the yarn I used.
