How to transfer your beads from the bead string to your working cotton:
Transfer beads from bead strings thus: separate one string from your bead hank.Tie off one end. With the other end of the bead string, tie a single knot around the shaft of the perle cotton. Pull tight. Slide one inch of beads at a time from the temporary string to your perle cotton.
Ch 4, join with ss to first ch, ch1
(insert hook in centre of circle, yo, draw up loop, 2 lps on hook. Move 1 bead up to 2 lps, yo, draw through both loops on hook) 1 bsc made. Make 7 more bsc in circle, do not join
*2 bsc in each st* around 16 bsc
1 bsc in each st around
(into back lp of bsc below, insert hook, draw up lp, pull up 65 beads (or 4 inches of beads), yo, draw through both lps on hook) 1 fringe stitch made. Make another fringe stitch in this same bsc. Continue in this manner, making 2 fringe sts in each bsc around (32 fringe sts).
End off and tie in ends.
