An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Using more beads in the circumference of a crochet beaded rope gives greater scope for design. Early in my learning process I tried a pattern with a circumference of 16 beads, but soon realised that I couldn't manage it. Since then I've largely used patterns with 6 beads. But I think I'm ready to move on a bit, so yesterday I made a bracelet with a circumference of 8 beads. With more beads, the centre is hollow and the working beads tend to collapse inwards a bit, which means that you must pay more attention to make sure you're working into the correct stitch. I hope that's the secret I was looking for! I found the pattern on Pinterest.
