TWO BEAD START DECREASE I always start my rows with two beads in the following fashion. Many directions show in- creases and decreases with just one bead but this leaves threads showing on the outside edges of your work, which I don’t like. A two bead start eliminates this problem. 1. With needle A, which emerged from the top of your ladder in the last step, pick up 2 beads. (Needle B is left dangling from bottom to be used for fringe later. 2. Run your needle under the SECOND con- necting thread and back up again, catching connecting thread in loop created by your needle. 3. Run thread back up through second bead. AT THIS POINT, NOTE THAT FORMER WORK IS SHOWN AS FINER LINES, NEW WORK IS THICKER LINE 4. From top of second bead, run needle back down through first bead of new row. 5. Run needle under connecting thread be- tween first and second beads of base row (or ladder). 6. Run needle back up through second bead. 7. Pick up bead #3 8. Run needle under connecting thread be- tween First row beads 3 and 4, and back up, catching connecting thread in loop made by needle. 9. Run needle back up through bead 3 of row 2. 10.
