In issue 58 (on sale Friday 26 September 2014) Claire Montgomerie and Linda Lehman show just how easy it is to crochet your own versions of modern beaded necklaces.
There’s currently a noticeable trend for bold beaded “ropes” styled as necklaces, bracelets and lariats – you’ve probably seen them in high street stores such as Zara, Accessorize and Marks & Spencer. Luckily for us crocheters, there is a fabulous beading technique that we can use to copy this structure, which also gives you the freedom to introduce your own beads, colours and even patterning.
