AIRY CROCHET TUTORIAL
'Airy Crochet', as it has become known, is a technique of crocheting a chain of monofilament thread such as fine fishing line or 'illusion cord', adding beads as you go along. The results can be stunning, and yet it isn't as difficult or as time-consuming as you might think. With the aid of this tutorial you can produce some beautiful crocheted jewellery.
The tutorial includes of 11 pages of instructions, hints and tips, with lots of photos and diagrams to help you through every step. Whilst the basic technique is simple, it has taken many, many hours of trial and error to find the best way to construct an 'airy crochet' necklace or bracelet, and I have discovered quite a few helpful tricks along the way, which I have shared within the tutorial.
No previous knowledge of jewellery making is needed as I have described exactly how to finish the necklace with easily available findings and with only one tool required - a small pair of pliers.
Basic crochet skills are needed, but for those of you who are a bit rusty (or even those who are new to crochet) I've included a two-page 'Quick Crochet Lesson' to show you the very simple chain stitch you will need (the lesson is an excerpt from my 'Learn to Crochet' book).
