It was a great day to work with BEADS! These little motifs are Le Blog de Frivole's December Motif. Beads were part of my Improvement list and so far I'm making slow progress. This pattern calls for a long picot in the first round with beads added to that picot via crochet hook in the second round. Unfortunately the beads I was using are too small to fit over my smallest crochet hook. So I had to get creative to string the beads onto the picot before joining. The white one used the directions for the beads, where I experimented with pink motif and red beads. By placing the beads on the ball thread, I added them to the picot in each chain that way. For the next couple motifs, perhaps I'll go up a bead size so they fit on my crochet hook.
Using the pink thread got me thinking about Valentines Day. I'll have to try some heart patterns and add some beads.Cherrio for now!
