How to make crocheted beads in a few easy steps. Many time people asked me to write this tutorial and finally it's here. These crochet balls you can make in all the colours of the rainbow and in any size.It is a very good idea for beginners to start out with thick yarn and a large hook so they can practice before going down to the skinnier threads and crochet hooks. Used terms: stitch (st.), single crochet (sc), single crochet 2 together (sc2tog) A wooden bead is perfect as a core of a crochet ball, but you can use acrylic beads as well. Use proper size of crochet needle for the yarn you chose to use for the bead.Take a bead about 2 cm diameter. Make a loop a few inches from the end of your yarn.Take the loop where two threads overlap, between your left thumb and forefinger. Insert hook into the loop from front to back. Draw up a loop.Make a chain. Insert the hook into the loop, so you are crocheting over a loop and the yarn tail. Draw up a loop to begin your first SC. Complete the SC.
