  String on a stopper bead, leaving about 10" of thread to make your loop, or put on your clasp afterwards. Start by stringing 9 sets of 1A, (accent color, inthis case black), 2M, (main color, white), for a total of 27 beads. Go back up through the 3rd A bead from the bottom. It should look like this picture. Now add 2 M, 1 A, 2 M, skip next accent, and go up through the next accent bead. Keep your thread tension snug, but not so tight that it will buckle.

Continue in this pattern to top, go through first accent bead you strung. Now we'll make our turn. At this point I like to turn my work so I'm always going up. Keep your thread tension snug. String on 2 main color, 1 accent, 2 main color beads, and go through the next accent on the previous row. Continue adding 2 main, 1 accent, 2 main, skipping next accent from the row before, and going through the next, to end.

Net Necklace To begin, string on a stopper bead, leaving a 6 to 8" tail for adding a clasp later. Then add 1 accent bead (in this case red), 5 Main color beads, 1 Accent bead, 3 Main color beads, and 3 Accent beads. Then go back up through the last black bead you strung on. This will form a picot at the end. You may have to coax the three beads into place by hand. (See next picture to see how they should look.) Now string on 2 Main color beads, 1 Accent, 5 Main color, and go up through the first Accent bead so that your thread is coming out of the top like in the picture.

For the turn at the top, string on 7 Main, 1 Accent, and 5 Main. Then go down through the middle Accent bead from the row before. Now we'll make this loop larger than the last one. String on 8 Main, and 3 Accent beads, and go back up through the last Main to form the picot String on 7 Main, 1 Accent, and 5 Main color beads, and go up through the top Accent bead from the row before. Keep repeating this pattern until the end, alternating between one short loop, and one larger
