Materials   String your beads on your crochet thread using the Big Eye beading needle. The first bead of the first row of each pattern is marked by a red dot on each pattern graph. You will start from the left and work to the right to thread each row, working your way through the entire pattern graph before starting at the red dot of the next pattern. When all five patterns are strung on your yarn, you can start to crochet your rope. 15 grams dark blue Size 10/0 Preciosa seed beads 15 grams medium dark blue Size 10/0 Preciosa seed beads 15 grams light blue Size 10/0 Preciosa seed beads 15 grams white Size 10/0 Preciosa seed beads Crochet thread 1 – 1.2mm crochet hook Clasp, two bead caps and 10cm 22-gauge wire Beading thread Tools Scissors Big Eye beading needle Round-nose pliers and wire cutters Techniques: Basic crochet knowledge required.
