Start by waxing and stretching your thread, use Nymo D or C-Lon & a #11 or #12 beading needle. I used Fireline 6lb. crystal.  Tie in a "stopper" bead, leaving about an 8" tail and begin at step #1.

1. Pick up 5A, go with thread forward through the first 4 A beads.
2. Pick up 8A, 5B, go with thread forward through the 1st B bead.
3. Pick up 3B, 7A, go with thread forward through the 4th A bead added in step #1 (first time) or the 3rd A bead added in step #16 (every time after), the 8 A, 1st B beads added in step #2 and the 3 B beads just added in this step.
4. Pick up 1A, 1C, 1A, go with thread forward through the 7th A bead added in step #3, down through the 2nd A and C beads just added in this step.

7. Pick up 1A, 1C, 1A, go with thread forward through the 10th A bead added in step #6, down through the 2nd A and C beads just added in this step.
8. Pick up 1A, go with thread down through the 1st B bead added in step #6 and up through the 3rd B bead added in step #3.

9. Pick up 1B, go with thread down through the 3 B beads added in step #6, forward through the 2nd and 3rd B beads added in step #2.
10. Pick up 1B, 10A, go with thread through the 2nd and 1st A beads added in step #6, the 3rd B bead added in step #2, the B bead and the 1st A beads just added in this step.
11. Pick up 1D, go with thread forward through the 6th A bead added in step #10 and down through the D bead just added in this step.
12. Pick up 1A, go with thread through the 2nd and 1st A beads added in step #6, forward through the 3rd and 4th B beads added in step #2.
13. Pick up 4B, go with thread up through the B bead added in step #10, forward through the 4th and 5th B beads added in step #2, backwards through the 8th and 7th A beads added in step #2.

14. Pick up 10A, go with thread up through the 1st B bead added in step #13, the 5th B bead added in step #2 and backwards through the 8th and 7th A beads added in step #2.
15. Pick up 1A, 1D, go with thread forward through the 5th A bead added in step #14. Continue with thread down through the D bead just added in this step, the 10th A bead added in step #14, up through the 1st B bead  added in step #13, up through the 5th, 1st and down the 2nd B beads added in step #2 and forward through the 1st through 9th A beads added in step #6. Follow thread path in illustration.
16. Pick up 4A, go with thread up through the 9th A bead added in step #6, forward through the 1st, 2nd and 3rd A beads just added in this step.
17. a) Continue necklace by repeating steps #2 through #16 until you reach the length that you want your necklace to be. To add clasp, see page 9.
b) To add clasp, pick up 3A, clasp, 3A, go with thread up through 2 A beads in necklace. Continue with thread around through the clasp beads several times for strength. Weave the working thread into the necklace and end. Repeat the clasp directions in the same manner at the other end of necklace after removing the stopper bead.
