Pattern for Crocheted Beads, 2 sizes.

 

You’ll need:

- wooden beads, size 0.7 inch (1,8 cm)

- wooden beads, size 1 inch (2,5 cm)

- yarn (I use thin cotton knitting yarn, like Catania)

- crochet hook, size US B-C 1-4 (UK 14-11, NL 2-3mm)

(or use any size of wooden beads you like, with matching yarn and hook)

 

Stitches:

Ch = US chain stitch (Dutch: losse)

SC = US single crochet (UK: double crochet, Dutch: vaste)

Sl = US slip stitch (UK: single crochet, Dutch: halve vaste)
