Crocheted Rings, So Cute!

Do you follow Bramcost Publishing on Facebook?  How about their blog: http://blog.bramcostpublications.com/? They post awesome vintage patterns all the time.  I'm not in any way affiliated with Bramcost, I'm just a fan.  You should think about checking them out.
Just recently, they posted this pattern for crocheted beaded rings: http://blog.bramcostpublications.com/2011/01/06/ring-in-the-vintage-new-year-day-6a-vintage-beaded-ring-pattern.aspx. I’m in love with these fun rings and can’t stop making them!
I’ve been using elastic thread available from any Joann’s. I would highly recommend picking up some beading needles while you’re there as it will make your life easier.

The rings are super simple to make. The hardest thing is that you are working on a small scale so it’s sometimes hard to see your stitches (keep in mind, I did just get a prescription for TRIfocals so it could just be me!). With that said, the elastic is very forgiving so if you skip a stitch here or there, you probably won’t notice it.
You can use any size beads, not just the sizes listed. As long as the beads are large enough to be strung onto the elastic thread, you can use them. The larger the bead, the larger your ring.  You can also vary the size of the ring by changing up how many beads you use.
Like potato chips, I think you’ll find with these rings that it’s hard to stop at just one!

Thank you so much for posting the link to the pattern. I have one of these rings that used to belong to my grandma. It's ridiculously large, but I love it.
I now need to learn to crochet so I can make some more!

When I lived in Atlanta, GA we would make these rings for our Beta Sigma Phi yard sales (in the 70's) and sell them once a month, along with other items. We made a bundle on them at 50 cents each! Glad to finally find the pattern again! Thanks!
