Question How to make Ladder rosaries with beads and cord

I've been looking all over the net, but I can't find any instructions on how to make ladder rosaries with pony beads and cord. I found one at church, which was made of plastic pony beads and included a crucifix and centerpiece. The closest thing I've found online, is sacrifice beads. there was one other site, but those rosaries had spacers and no center piece, and not at all like the one I have. I'd really like to make some, but don't know who made this one. I don't want to waste anymore printer ink printing the wrong instructions. Does anyone know of any? OLRM doesn't have those type of instructions, and the others are for wire ones. Please help!

Need a picture of what you have. Perhaps I could figure out how to make it and then let you know how I did it. If you don't have a digital camera then perhaps you could scan it into your computer if your printer has a scanner.

I make what's called a "Pull Rosary" with bonded cord & plastic pony beads.

I don't think I have any made up-and a Deacon-friend asked me Sunday to make some more for him. If he doesn't finish his Rosary, he likes how it keeps his place! Kids like them too!

I'll try to get one made up this evening, and post instructions & a picture here.

I like to make them with AB beads (Aurora Borealis). Glitter makes cool ones too. Then, there's Glo in the Dark...

Perhaps this might help. A search for how to's for ladder bracelets or ladder stitch's might also help. I can't find anything on ladder cord Rosary's either.

One day, several years ago when I was standing and praying in front of Planned Parenthood, I noticed a Rosary a young College-aged lady was praying on. I asked her to see it. She said her mother's friend made it and gave it to her mother, and her mother gave it to her.

I went home and figured out how to make them.

You pull the Hail Mary's.

Does this look like what you're thinking about?

I don't know if this is a Ladder Rosary but it looks similar to what Dawn posted.

I found a Ladder Rosary, made of knotted twine (no beads):
