Ok. I've crocheted for years but what do you mean: "ROW 1: With Beach and H hook join in next free st row 1 of header, ch-1, sc sa st as ch-1, leave remaining sts unworked, ch-1, turn. (1 st)"?
I mean, you say ch-1, sc sa - what is an sa st???

Sa = Same
It means single crochet in same stitch as beg ch-1.
Sorry for the confussion. I've stopped using that abbreviation.

Great idea Donna!!

This is a great idea Donna!! I would've never thought of it to replace my missing door! Beads or flowers can be added to the crochet to make it heavier for hanging! Thank you!!

Would be a lot of fun but probably not a good window covering if you have cats! - Mine would pull it down in an instant when they played with the strands! LOL

it would be nice if you could show the complete curtain with the header so we can see the finished product.

I've been crocheting for 40 years, and this is the first time I have ever seen the crochet abbreviation "sa". Thanks Guanaja Sharon for asking about it. If you hadn't, I would have.

With all the criticism no wonder Anonymous is. Love the idea, Donna! I could have figured out the sa meant same. Logic. :)

What a neat idea. I never would have thought of it in a million years. Thanks for sharing your creativity!!

Very cute, and will keep this pattern for my son's room when we get our new place back east. :D

As for the "sa" instruction, not seen it in many a moon, but didn't hesitate... I knew right what it meant! I used to do "vintage patterns" all the time, it's not the most common, but still used. I see it most in pre-1950 patterns. lol

How would I add beads? I think that is a good idea!

Simple, string the beads onto your yarn. Before you finish the single crochet (2 loops on your hook) slide the bead down as close to the hook as you can and complete the stitch! One bead added!
