Crochet Bead Ropes can be great fun to make, but trying to manage the first few rows can be very difficult, especially when first learning the technique. It can be so frustrating, that many people just give up on it. So I developed a tool, the patent pending Crochet Bead Rope Starter Jig, specifically to help stabilize and control the first few rows, making it so much easier - I teach classes in Crochet Bead Ropes, and my students are much happier now using this tool. Please note that you can make 5 around ropes with the jig (there is an additional file showing you how to use the jig for 6 around ropes as well). This jig cannot be used for making larger diameter ropes.

In addition, you get a CD with a 20+ page tutorial, including 50+ full color photos, showing the details in extreme close-up. The main focus is on how to get started making Crochet Bead Ropes using the Jig, however I also provide the steps and photos for the basic crocheting technique, how to add more beads/thread, and how to complete the bangle using a center focal section... Please note that the text and the photos remain the intellectual property of StudioDax - do not distribute or make copies.

The CD includes some bonus files showing you how to use the jig for a 6-round crochet rope (I suggest using the jig for the easier 5-round rope first!), and a file showing you an easy way to break beads on the thread without damaging the thread.

PLEASE REFER TO PHOTO 4 FOR COMPLETE LIST OF SUPPLIES AND MATERIALS.

NOTE: THIS ITEM INCLUDES THE JIG, THE TUTORIALS ON CD, AND THREAD CLIP.

The directions and photos all refer to right handed crocheting, but the tool is "non-directional" - you just use it clockwise (there is a comment on the front page about this). Many customers have followed the steps left handed, and it works fine.

Several folks have asked me what size beads can be used with the jig... the materials list is for size 6/0 beads, but I regularly make bracelets with size 8/0 also. And for all those folks who like the tiny beads... YES - you can use size 11/0 beads with the jig! You just need a lot more beads, thinner thread, a smaller crochet hook, and a lot more patience!

I will continue re-listing this item each time after it sells, so if you return, and it is sold, please check back or convo me!

Please Note:
The Jig will be shipped in the US via USPS in a Priority Flat Rate box. I will refund excess shipping over $1 for people ordering multiple items that can fit into the box. International orders will ship via First Class mail in a padded envelope.

** I am so sorry for the new hike in shipping, however this is beyond my control!

**** I am happy to discuss wholesale terms - please ask me! ****
