Turkish flat bead crochet

This is a very simple stitch. You will need 2 balls of different color size 10 thread, and size 11 seed beads, and a size 7 hook. String the beads onto the thread of both balls. Holding both strands of each ball together, tie a slip knot. Now just make one color your left side and one color your right side, this must remain consistent throughout. Insert your hook into the slip knot. Starting with left side thread, *slide a bead down to the slip knot, yo (use left side ball thread)pull thru loop on hook. Right side, slide a bead down , yo using right side thread, pull thru loop on hook.* Repeat from * to * for desired length. Be sure to tighten the loops as you go along.

Hope you have enjoyed making this old bead technique.
