Using the size 6 / 1.80 mm steel crochet hook and the red thread or embroidery floss, make a slip knot. Secure the thread to the wire with a chain stitch. Work 1 more ch st overtop of the first bead, and work a sc st on the other side of the bead. (Slide the next bead close to the stitch. Ch 1 overtop of the bead, sc .)
Take a look at the photos labeled H and I to see how the beadwork will look while it is in progress.
Repeat the steps above until all the red and pink beads have been worked. End with a sc stitch; before completing last step of the last sc, attach the hot pink thread. Ch 1 to turn.
Flip the work over so that the top becomes the bottom and the bottom becomes the top. Ch 1, anchoring the floss to the wire. (Work 1 ch overtop of the next bead, sc on the other side of the bead.) Repeat all the way across until all beads have been worked. End with a sc after the last bead.
View J shows how the beadwork will look when both sides have been worked.
