The first attempt for beads crochet, needs to be easy. You work in rounds so choose colors that you can follow easily into a pattern. To start, use big beads like ‘pony beads’ or big rocailles. Every bead will do in the beginning when it has a flat top and bottom. Next, create a simple pattern. If you work with 12 beads in one row, start by using 6 different colors. Like for sample: yellow, white, pink, blue, green, purple. Repeat this pattern until you have a string that you can work with for trying out.
The following I can’t explain in a few words, just watch the video below from Naztasia. She is working with bigger beads so you can easily follow along. Keep trying until this works out for you. After that, try some smaller beads and a smaller hook if needed.
On Pinterest, you can find some awesome patterns when it comes to beads crochet. Most of them are free. If you are looking for patterns, which are easy to follow, try something with lines, flowers, and such. They will repeat very fast. This way you can see the pattern much easier and is checking if you still do the right one, much faster.
