Crochet beads instruction
On this page I show with photos how I crochet beads in a simple way, with as few counts as possible. It's not very difficult. Quite a fiddly job, which may take some getting used to.
But how nice is it when you make your own beads?
Please note: I am left-handed, so I crochet exactly the other way around. Sorry about that!
Basic crochet stitches, and even videos on how to crochet beads, can also be easily found on YouTube.
To get started you will need:
Wooden beads of 18 mm, crochet cotton , a crochet hook of 2 mm and a beading needle.
You also need to know how to crochet 'singles'.
That's the only crochet stitch you need for this bead.
Note: In the photos below you can see the process if you crochet with your left hand (completely self-evident to me ;-) ) I will adjust the photos for right-handed crocheting!
