Figure 1: String beads to equal the desired circumference. Tie in a circle with enough slack for 2 or 3 more beads. Even-numbered beads form row 1 and odd numbered beads are row
Figure 2: Slip the ring over a form if desired. Go through the first bead to the left of the knot. Pick up a bead (#1 of row 3), skip a bead and go through the next bead. Repeat around until you're back to the start.
Figure 3: To begin each row if you started with an even number of beads as shown, go through the first beads of rows 2 and 3. This is called the "step up" which positions you to start the next row. Pick up a bead and go through the second bead of row 3; repeat.
Note: if you begin with an odd number of beads, there won't be a step up; you'll keep spiraling.
