Nice pattern, I'll give it a shot. I make ones with buttons. Last week my mom gave me an old shawl pattern which when followed ended up in a ball. I re-wrote it & it turned out wearable. I like old patterns too. I'll keep checking in with you from Columbus Ohio

very nice,I used to be a crocheter then became a jewelry maker.I have made almost one thousand earrings and necklaces but have NEVER tried bead crochet,this sounds like something I want to learn but haven't crocheted in several years and have forgotten how to make the basic stitches.Where do I start??I have the basic equiptment I think.
