|String on the beads for your 1st and 2nd row and stitch all but the last bead in your third row.|
Rather than go in and through only one bead at the end, go through the last two beads (or bead stacks if you are working more than 1-drop).
|Your 3rd row will be missing its last bead. Let's fix that.|
|Pick up the last bead (or bead stack, be sure to go in reverse order) and go through the two beads shown in the photo.|
|Go through the last bead of Row 3 and turn your work|
|You are now ready to bead Row 4.|
|I take my need through the bead immediately below the one I just came out of.|
|And then I take another quick "U-turn" and am back where I started, and turn my work.|
|This is the "U-turn" you will use for the "odd" rows from here on in.|
|When you add the last bead of your row, you only go through the one bead in the preceding row, as shown.|
|Then you take your needle through the two rows below it, as shown.|
|so take it through the last bead of your row and turn.|
|And, as they would say in England, carry on...|
And that's all for today. Be well and get going, but please come back tomorrow for some Wednesday Window Shopping with Sand Fibers.
