Take a 5.5m thread. Pick up A seed beads onto the thread.
Make two chains without seed beads. Push 10 seed beads to the loops. Crochet the next chains in the same way, but using seed beads. Yarn the thread over the hook and crochet chain stitch (seed bead should be on the right side of the hook). Crochet nine seed beads more in the same way. Tried to crochet tight enough.
Close the ring. To do this, go through the first loop and go through both loops onto the hook, pull tightly.
When the ring is ready push the next 10 seed beads. Then go through the loop with the first seed bead -- on the left of the bead. Slide the next seed bead on the thread. New seed bead should go strictly over the first one. Slide the thread through both loops on the hook. Then crochet all the next beads in the same way.
If you are crocheting correctly, in all rows, except the last, the bead will be located up holes and only the last row of beads arranged holes sideways.
Crochet the last row in the same way, but without seed beads.
Insert the wire into the rope.
