THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY! IF YOU LIKE THIS TUTORIAL PLEASE REPIN IT HERE
This tutorial is for 1,5 - 2,5 cm basic bead and 250 - 450 m/100 g yarn. Probably it will suit other bead size and yarns gauge - but I haven't checked it:)
So you need: yarn (I prefer 100% mercerized cotton, my favourites are Yarna Egio, YarnArt Lily, Pekhorka Uspeshnaya), matching crochet hook, a basic wooden or plastic bead, a needle, preferably blunt one, and scissors.
I recommend to start the bead with a magic ring to make a start point almost invisible.
Make 6-8 stitches for the first round
Pull the stray end taut
Make the second round working two stitches into every stitch of the row
Then continue alternating one st to one st of the previous row with two sts to one st of the previous row while your crochet work matches diameter of the bead with a small excess
Continue crocheting without increasing while your bead is almost covered with a crocheted cozy
Then work two stitches in one while a hole reaches desired size.
Cut the thread
Using the blunt needle insert the free thread end into the next stitch entering from center
Insert the needle into the loop and tighten it
Insert the needle into the next stitch entering from center
Pull the thread and return to the last stitch
Withdraw the thread to the opposite pole of the bead and cut the thread. The bead is looking quite accurate, isn't it?
