Tubular Bead Crochet Tutorial 
Easier Alternative Method For Starting Your Tube (Rope)

Click Here For Video Tutorial

During the first few rounds of tubular bead crochet the tube 

(rope) loses its shape due to the weight of the beads onto the thin 

crochet thread.

In the video tutorial, I demonstrate an alternative way to crochet 

the first few rounds of your tube. The method I use physically 

supports the shape of your tube. It prevents the tube from losing 

it's shape and makes it easier for you to see your stitches more 

clearly, thereby making it easier to crochet your tube.

Materials required: 

Size 7mm steel crochet hook

Size 10 cotton crochet thread

1/4" cotton clothesline rope (7 inches long) for tubular bead 

crochet with 5 beads in each round. The size of the clothesline 

rope required depends on the beads size and the number of 

beads in each round.
