A part A

2 Shuttles:

R: 3-2-3-3-2-3, cl. RW

C: [5 -- four times]5, RW

R: 3-2-3+3-2-3, cl. RW

C: -- 5 five times, join RW

3 Shuttles (or 2 Shuttles and 1 Ball thread), 9 pearls:

AA: Make knots ALTERNATING 1st shuttle and 2nd shuttle WITH 2nd shuttle and ball thread. So:

Þ 10ds as usual, alternated with 8 border ds;

Þ (*) before joining long picot, insert the same long picot in a beard;

Þ 8ds as usual, alternated with 7 border ds (**);

Þ repeat from (*) to (**) other seven times;

Þ before joining the last long picot, insert the same long picot in a beard;

Þ 10ds as usual, alternated with 8 border ds; join, cut and tie.

NOTE: if inserting a pearl in a long picot is a problem, I have a "trick": I insert a little piece of nylon thread through the picot, then I insert its two ends through the pearl and so I have the picot inside the pearl to be joined with a crochet hook.
