Learn how to make the mini bean stitch in the round with a simple trick
There are some stitches that are only worked in rows, in order to produce the result they are supposed to. One of them is the mini bean stitch. Today I will show you how to achieve the exact same result and make the mini bean stitch in the round.
The first row is as usual. Chain a multiple of 2+1, make a mini bean stitch in the third chain from hook, ch 1 and repeat the mini bean stitches until you reach the last chain.
Now that you made your last mini bean stitch in the last chain and chained 1, slip stitch in the first mini bean of the round to join. That would be a great time to sew the bottom half with the yarn that remained from the initial chain.
Let’s continue. You will now face the inside of your work. After you chain 2, work the mini bean stitch in the space indicated and not the chain 1 as usual. Continue in this manner until you reach the end of the round. Slip stitch in the first mini bean stitch of the round and repeat round 2 for as many rounds as you like.
A pattern example would look something like this:
R1: ch 21, bean stitch in the third chain from hook, ch 1, sk 1 st, *bean stitch, ch 1, sk 1 st * repeat from * to * across, sl st in the first bean stitch of the round, ch 2, turn
R2: * bean stitch, ch 1 * repeat from * to * around, sl st in the first bean stitch of the round, ch 2, turn
R3-…: repeat round 2 as many times you like to get the desired height.
