Bead Stitch

*1 dc in the next st. The rest of the bead stitch is crocheted around the post of the dc you just crocheted. You will be working around the post by inserting your hook from the front of the work, to the back of the work and back to the front of the work (just like if you were making a front post stitch).  Yarn over and insert the hook around the post of the dc, yarn over and pull up 1 loop**. Work from * to ** 3 times in total. You will have 7 loops on your hook. Yarn over and pull through 6 loops, yarn over and pull through the remaining 2 loops on your hook.
