Bead Crochet is Carol Perreound's 75 minute color video on bead crochet. This video shows how to make a completely beaded purse, 2 partially beaded purses which use different kinds of crochet stitches, and 2 types of crocheted rope necklaces (like the ones from the flapper era). Excellent close-up shots and samples made with pony beads ensure that you can see every detail of each technique. Prior knowledge of crochet is helpful, but not essential. Stitch-by stitch written instruction and patterns are included..
One of the neatest things about bead crochet is its portability. Once all the beads are strung on the crochet thread, it's easy to take your project with you and crochet anywhere! Bead crochet is also one of the most variable techniques. You can create complex designs with all-over beading, or create textural patterns by placing beads in some crochet stitches, but not others. You can crochet necklaces or bags. Carol covers all types of bead crochet in this video.
