In bead crochet, beads are strung onto the crochet thread and captured into specific stitches as one crochets along. The beads can form a raised geometric design against a crocheted thread background or the beads can be strung onto the thread in a precise color pattern. When the beads are worked into every stitch they form a solid beaded picture or pattern. Even if you do not know how to crochet, with a little practice you will soon be crocheting with beads. Using simple crochet stitches, you will learn how to make a bead crocheted drawstring pouch similar to styles used in the Victorian Era and a necklace or bracelet like those from the roaring twenties. Materials are discussed and patterns included. You will learn to make a “Chain Stitch Necklace”, a “Slip Stitch Rope Necklace”, a “Beaded Single Crochet” coin purse and a drawstring evening bag that combines many stitches and beads. Helpful hints, beads, and a variety of stitches will inspire you for future projects.
