A quick beaded crochet bracelet tutorial

Crochet beaded bracelet 10

Here’s a little tutorial to make a simple beaded crochet bracelet or anklet.

Crochet beaded bracelet


A length of crochet cotton (or embroidery cotton) approximately 3-4m long
2.5mm crochet hook
10-15 small beads (how many you use is dependant on how closely you attach them and how long you bracelet or anklet is.

1. First up you will need to thread your beads onto the cotton. Just remember you can’t add beads once you start crocheting, so make sure you add more than enough now.Crochet beaded bracelet

2. Next double the cotton over and tie off a knot to leave a small loop in the centre of your length. This loop is your fastening loop for joining to the other end of your finished bracelet.Crochet beaded bracelet

3. Insert your hook through the loop you just made and pull up a loop (both threads) and begin to crochet your chain. You need to chain the length you want your bracelet to be.Crochet beaded bracelet

5. Single crochet in the next 3 spaces, pull up another bead and single crochet over the bead again. Repeat this for the length of your bracelet – leaving an even number of stitches between each bead (i.e. we’ve added the bead and then worked 3 single crochet before adding another bead, so that’s the pattern we want to stick to. Of course you could choose to leave more or less spaces between each bead to alter the look of the bracelet, just keep it even).Crochet beaded bracelet

6. Add your last bead and single crochet in the last stitch, pull through the end and then wrap the yarn around, knot and fasten off just below the loop. Sew you end back into the bracelet securely. Crochet beaded bracelet

    I haven’t done any beading and this looks like a really good way to start. Thanks for the tutorial.
    Also I can see your wonderful pattern being used as the top edge of a little knitting bag.
    That is what I would like to try it for.

    This is so clever! I’ve been wanting to make a friendship bracelet! I love the beads, but I want to make a friendship bracelet for a boy, so not sure what I can do instead. I feel like just a chain stitch would be too plain. Hm… must think about it. But thank you for the tutorial!

    Oh thank you for the idea. Just made two for my daughters. For one of the bracelets I’ve used 4ply cotton(2 strands) and a 4mm hook. Love the result!
    Have a wonderful day!

    I’m going to make some of these for all my grandaughters… I have nine dgds, five dgs… Thank you for the instructions. And have to add that there is acually a way to add more beads if you haven’t put enough on your thread to start and its easy. I’m sure there is a youtube video to show how to do it.Much easier though to just do it this way
