The drizzle stitch was not completely new to me. I did a few of them on my Assisi dragon (above his head in medium pink). But now I was inspired by Elizabeth’s beaded drizzles. It took me some time to figure out how to do that. I added the beads before I made the cast on loops. Then I slid a bead down after every 3 loops and I ended with a bead on the end of the drizzle stitch. I made drizzles with only a bead at the end and drizzles without beads too. I tried different threads: DMC broder special (orange), 4 threads of stranded DMC (red) and perle 5 (yellow). It’s a great stitch, but difficult to photograph!
