The Pattern

Loading Beads onto the Cotton from the Hanks:

You will be transferring them from one sting to the other. At this point you will only put up to 6 stands. Too many at one time will get tangled.

Note: This piece is worked in same direction. Do not turn.

Base: Chain 6 – join.

BEAD LOOP Round
Tassel for Bottom: go through the center bring up as if to sc. Do not complete sc, slide 30 beads down then close around them. That made one single crochet with beads in the middle of that SC. Repeat this 12 times. Join in the top of the first of the 10 loops
Rd 1: Ch 1, sc in same space you joined in. Sc around all the 12 loops, slip in first ch to join.
Rd 2: Ch 1, sc in same sp, (* 2 sc in next sp, 1 sc in next * repeat) this will give you 18 sc. Join.
Rd 3: Ch 1, sc in same sp, (* 2 sc in next sp, 1 sc in next * repeat) this will give you 24 sc. Join.
Rd 4: Ch 1, sc in same sp, (*2 sc in next sp, 1 sc in next * repeat) this will give you 30 sc. Join.
BEAD Round
Rd 5: Ch 1 slide bead (counts as SC with bead) - (*Sc Bead*) completely around.
Rd 6: Ch 2, Hdc in same space, Hdc 1 time in next space then HDC 2 times in next hole.
BEAD LOOP Round
Rd 7: Ch 1 slide a bead down – chain to close (*Slide 20 beads HDC next space do a HDC-B*). Repeat * -*, join.
Rd 8: Ch 2, Hdc in same space, Hdc 1 time in next space then HDC 2 times in next hole.

Rd 15: Ch 2, Hdc in same space, Hdc 1 time in next space then HDC 2 times in next hole.
Rd 16: Ch 1 slide bead (counts as SC with bead) - (*Sc Bead*) completely around.
Decreasing Rows
Rd 17: Ch 2, Hdc in same space, Hdc in next space, (*Skip one space and Hdc in next 2 spaces*) repeat *-* and Join.
Rd 18: Ch 2, Hdc in same space, Hdc in next space, (*Skip one space and Hdc in next 2 spaces*) repeat *-* and Join.

Crochet Chain Strap or Necklace: where you joined *(chain 1 – B chain - chain 1)* repeat to make the Chain for the bag. When long enough join to the bag directly across from the starting point then cut off.

This is beautiful. I am going to try in silver and gold and pearlescent and add them to my Christmas ornament collection. I think these could be an heirloom item. Thank you so much for the pattern.
