Tubular Beaded Crochet

Tubular beaded crochet is one of the simplest techniques to master for anyone who likes to crochet. The tube is made of slip stitches that spiral up. forming a cord, while the beads are simply held at the base of the thread before each loop is pulled through to complete the slip stitch. By varying the types and sizes of beads, or the thread thickness, you can create many different effects. The thicker the thread used in relation to the bead size, the more space will show up between the beads.

To make a practice sample of this technique, string four colors of size 8 beads on size 5 perle cotton in the sequence of one bead in color 1, one bead in color 2. one bead in color 3, and one bead in color 4. Repeat this same sequence about ten to twenty limes. Make a slip knot, 'fhen, using a size 7 crochet hook, make four bead chains by sliding a bead into each chain stitch as it is made. See Photos 41-43.

Begin the spiral by making a beaded slip stitch into the first beaded chain stitch you made. To do this, put the crochet hook through the beaded loop of the first chain stitch,

keeping the beed to the right of the htK>k. See Photo 44. Slide a new bead down the thread so it is behind, and to the right of. the bead on the loop. The new bead will be the same color as the bead on the loop the crochet hook is through. Wrap the thread over the crochet hook and pull it through both loops. See Photo 45 and Fig. 12. The new bead will be locked in the stitch to the right of the bead below. Continue in this manner by making a beaded slip stitch in every stitch. Every stitch you put the hook through will have the same color bead as the stitch you are making. The bead colors will spiral around the cord.

ABOUT fifty years ago, when the subject of English furniture first began to be studied and to be written about, it was divided conveniently into four distinct types. One writer called his books on the subject The Age of Oak, The Age of Walnut, The Age of Mahogany and The Age of Satinwood. It is not really quite as simple as that, for each of the so-called Ages overlaps the others and it is quite impossible to lagt down strict dates as to when any one timber was introduced or when it finally, if ever, went out of favour.
