1-inch paper bead
2 - 1/4 -inch paper beads ("clasp")
Parcel Post Twine
1/2.75 mm Hook
Make 68 chains (weave the tail in as you go).
Insert the string of chains into the 1-inch bead.
Slip stitch back 31 stitches (always insert the hook into the spine, rather than the front or back loop of each chain).
Use a short strand of scrap yarn to mark the stitch that is 6 chains from the hook.
Push the bead against the last stitch made.
Chain 5 over the bead.
Slip stitch where your marker is and continue to make slip stitches up through the very first chain.
Cut enough string so that the entire circumference will allow you to put your head through.
Use the hook to pull the tail across through the 68th chain.
Insert the "clasps" and knot the ends enough times so they don't fall out.
And here's another variation... it's got an Asian-feel to it...
3/6/11... just made another set of beads with a blue toile print; no words this time, and I sealed it with some nail polish (that stuff is kind of stinky, so don't do too many beads at once). The polish really brightens the ink.
