1 1a Step 1 How to bead crochet – example shown uses a base of 10 beads (note: your project design will have 13). Make a slip knot and crochet 10 chains. Make a circle and work in single crochet to create a tube 1cm in length. To start adding your beads, take your crochet hook into a stitch (make sure you have both pieces of yarn), then slip down one threaded bead from your yarn and position it close to your work before making a single crochet stitch (Photos 1 – 1d). Repeat until you have worked 10 beads – this is the first row. 1c 1b 1d
