How to Crochet Boxed Bead Crochet Stitch

The boxed bead crochet stitch is one of the most unique stitches I have ever tried. It has a nice texture but still has a good drape.

The main feature of this stitch is a slanting cluster worked around the post of the previous stitch. Then the cluster is boxed in when you add an extended single crochet. It has a 2-row repeat so it’s easy to memorize. It does take a bit of patience to master at first though due to the placement of the extended single crochet stitches.

This crochet stitch would be suitable for any project where you want to add warmth and texture like baby blankets, scarves, or even a hat.


  • Ch(s): chain(s)
  • St(s): stitches
  • Sc: single crochet
  • esc: extended single crochet

Insert hook into stitch indicated, yo, pull up loop, yo. Pull through 1 loop, yo, pull through last 2 loops

  • dc: double crochet
  • Slcl: slanted cluster

(yo, insert hook around stem of previous dc from right to left, yo pull up loop) 3 times in same place, yo, pull through first 6 loops, yo. Pull through both loops.


  • Chain multiple 3 + 2
  • Odd rows = wrong side
  • Ch 2 counts as 1 esc
