Beaded Double Crochet: Yo, insert hook in stitch indicated. Yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through 2 loops on hook, bring up a bead, yo, pull through last 2 loops on hook.

String all beads on thread first. In the following pattern order. Color 1 through color 6. I used the following colors. Dark Pink, light pink, blue, green, yellow, white.

ROW 1: Ch 12. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch4, turn. The chain 4 counts as a ch3 with a chain 1 space in next row.

ROW 2: Sk the very first sc. Sk the next sc. *Dbdc in next sc. Ch1. Sk next sc. Rep from * 3 times more. Dc in last sc. Ch1, turn.

ROW 3: Sc in first dc. *Sc in next ch1 sp. Sc in next dbdc. Rep from * 3 times more. Sc in top of ch 4 sp. Sc in 3rd ch of ch4. Ch4, turn.

ROW 4: Rep ROW 2.

ROW 5: Rep ROW 3.

ROW 6: Rep ROW 2.

ROW 7: Rep ROW 3 but do not ch4, just chain one.

Now you will work around the perimeter of the piece. Treat each dc row as a ch3 space on both sides.
(Sc, hdc, 2dc, hdc, sc in each of the next 4 ch3 spaces.) Sc in each sc across bottom of ROW 1. Rep bet () once up other side. Sc in each of the next 5 sc across top. Ch94. Bdc, dc, bdc, dc, bdc, in 4th ch from hook. Ch2. Slst in same ch. Slst in each of the next 90 chains. Sk next sc of row 7. Sc in each of the next 4 sc. Join w/slst to ch1. Fasten off and weave ends into back of work.
