Doing crocheted ropes can be a bit fustrating in the beginning. But I love the look. I do have free instructions on my website if you care to take a look. I have directions for the slip stitch ropes and also how to do them with regular sc.
I use a dritz looped needle threader to put my beads on the thread or a collapsible beading needle. either make it easier to put the smallest bead possible on a given thread. I easily string size 11 beads on size 10 thread with these.
how can I find out what size thread/yarn to use with a certain size bead? Right now I have 60g beads( don't know the size) and I am totally lost as to how to get started. I have some size 10 thread and some ww yarn. Can some one help me please??!! I would like to crochet with size 10 thread and am also looking for some type of thread/string/yarn that is durable. My first project is to make myself a keychain.
Ok, on the front of the beads it says
2.1 oz 60g glass beads
On the back in little print it says:
60 grm glass E-bead cry rainbow
so I guess I have 3 packs of size e glass beads. lol
