sc., single crochetThe basic ring
Hold the ring between your thumb and forefinger. Begin by anchoring the end of the yarn to the ring with your fingers. (The loose end of the yarn should point towards the floor and lay on top of the ring).
Reach the hook through the center of the ring and pull a loop back through.
Yarn over and pull the first loop through the second.
*Reach the hook through the center of the ring again, hook the yarn, and pull a loop back through. You'll now have two loops on your hook.
Yarn over, and pull this loop through the other two.
Repeat from * until you have 40 sc. (or until the ring is totally covered).
Fasten off. Leave a 15cm tail.
When you've crocheted about 8 sc. over the loose end, cut the end off close to your work.
Repeat this pattern with 3 other rings.The center ring:
String 10 beads and finally a charm onto the yarn.
Repeat the pattern for the basic ring. Remember to attach the charm with one of the sc stitches.
Crochet in the round. *Crochet 3 sc, 1 sc with a bead. Repeat from * 9 times. If you need more than 40 sc. to cover the ring, remember to adjust the beaded round count of the center ring accordingly.
Fasten off and weave in ends by taking several stitches back and forth under the crochet seam on the outside of the ring. To assemble the rings:
String 2 silver beads onto the yarn tails of each of the 4 basic crocheted rings. Sew all the rings together securely and weave in the tails. The chain and fastening:
Pass yarn through the hole of the acrylic bead and tie it once centering the knot. Pass the thread through the hole once again and knot it twice. Make sure it is snug.
