What thread do you use for crochet beads?
Silkon® Bonded nylon thread works well for crochet. Most beads string well onto this thread, which is a synthetic material that drapes and knots like silk, but resists fraying and has incredible strength. The ends can be seared to prevent unraveling.

How many beads crochet rope?
Calculating for Mixed Size Beads
For example, for a 4 bead per row rope made up of [2mm – 4mm – 2mm – 2mm], the average “height” per row is (2+4+2+2)/4 = 10/4 =2.5mm (ave. height per row). Therefore you will need 80 of the 4mm beads and 80x (3x2mm) = 480 of the 2mm beads.
How is crochet thread size?
Crochet thread comes in sizes from 3 to 100, although historically it came in much finer sizes, down to 200. Diameter is inversely proportional to number, so size 3 is nearly as thick as yarn and size 100 is as fine as sewing thread.
