Dependent on length of purchased bead garland
Not critical for this project
When purchasing a bead garland, look for garland that has a bit of space between the beads. This will not work with beads that are glued together throughout. There must be a bit of string showing between the beads.
Crochet Pattern Instructions
If necessary, cut the bead garland to form a straight length if it is purchased in a continuous circle. With the crochet hook, make a slip stitch directly onto the garland in the space between the first bead and the second bead, at one end of the bead garland length.
Rnd 1: Join thread with sl st to first space between beads, [ch 2, sl st into space between the next two beads] across entire length of bead garland, ch 2, turn the bead garland to begin working along opposite side, working into the same spaces between beads as previously made, sl st into next space between the next two beads, [ch 2, sl st into space between the next two beads] across length of bead garland, ch 2, sl st to first ch-2 sp made.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, [sc, ch 3, sc] in each ch-2 sp around entire bead garland, sl st to first sc. End off. Using yarn needle, weave in all ends securely.
