Technique: Regular Crochet
- Hook: F/5/3.75mm

- Purchased pre-strung bead garland
ch=chain, sc=single crochet, sk=skip, sl=slip, sp=space, st=stitch (US stitch terminology)
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.
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.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. You can, of course, view, print, paste to a word processor, convert to PDF, etc. on your own. This is just an extra feature so that people help out, if they want. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
