St Petersburg Chain

We recieved a request from Emily for a St. Petersburg tutorial and as Mikki had one on hand....here it is...enjoy!


  1. Muchas gracias por compartir el esquema.....

  2. Thank you very much for the pattern.



  3. Thanks for sharing; I like the alternating amongst three different kinds of central beads. And so I don't want to sound ungrateful... but on page 2., after step 9, there is a very tempting promise of using the rest of the C, D, and E beads for Russian leaves... might you share the pattern for that as well? I understand that you can't share everything, but since it's already mentioned here... ;-)
    Thank you either way,

  4. Lol, Allie! Yes...this was part of a Lariat pattern I taught in a class and the ends had a trio of Russian leaves. We try and do free tuts on the basic stitches so we'll have to discuss whether or not we feel Russian Leaves fall into the basic category. We have a fair amount scheduled over the next couple of months with the Maven Meld contest but it's quite possible the leaves tut will show up...you'll just have to stay tuned :)

  5. I am teaching a class on the St. Petersburg Chain to my classmates in my senior activity advanced jewelry class. I must tell you that this is the best diagramed tutorial I have found. It was very easy for me to draw my own class lesson using your pictures. Thanks a lot.

  6. Thank you for sharing this tutorial.
