Crochet Beaded Jewelry · Free Pattern: Necklace, Bracelet, Anklet, & more!

by - March 19, 2022


Have you ever crocheted with beads before? It’s such a lovely addition to crochet projects, especially if you’re making some cute jewelry or accessories! Trying new things makes your life better, but it's hard to do if you're a student. A lot of assignments and textbooks take up all your time and leave you with nothing else to do, but don't get frustrated ahead of time. You can always buy essays without spending a lot of time and effort, you will get a high grade and you can try something new in the process.

I’m hooked on this new design of mine, which is a single pattern that can be adapted to make different types of jewelry or even accessories. Check out what it can be used for below!


This single pattern can be used to make...

  • Bracelets
  • Necklaces
  • Choker necklaces or collars
  • Belt
  • Belly dance hip scarf
  • Hair accessories
  • ...and more!

One great thing about crocheting jewelry is that it is SO quick to work up.  There aren't many total stitches for each project.


It also makes a great gift for friends and family, as it's not only super fast to work up but so easily customizable too.  You can customize this design using different yarn colors, yarn fibers, hook sizes, and beads.  These different materials will yield unique results!

Intro:

The Beaded Jewelry crochet pattern is a one-piece, no-sew project that is quick and easy to work up!  This single design can be made into a variety of jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets, anklets, chokers, and collars.  It can even be incorporated into a belt, belly dance hip scarf, or hair accessories.  The written pattern includes clear photo references as well as a link to the step-by-step video tutorial. You can customize your jewelry with different types of beads to create different fashion styles, such as boho (Bohemian), Mediterranean, and Arabic.  It is the perfect stash buster and makes a trendy gift or craft fair product for the Spring and Summer seasons!


Size:

Length is easily adjustable, depending on the type of jewelry you would like to create. Tips to adjust length are included in the pattern.


Level of Difficulty:

★★☆☆☆  Easy/Familiar Beginner. 
Requires familiarity with stitches used (below).


Stitches/Terms Used:

  • FO = fasten off 
  • Ch = chain 
  • Fsc = (chainless) foundation single crochet 
  • Sl st = slip stitch 
  • Sk = skip (a stitch)


Materials:

  • Any light-weight yarn (I recommend using embroidery thread, lace, or super fine yarn) 
  • Suitable crochet hook size with the yarn used (I used 2.75mm with DMC embroidery thread) 
  • Beads
  • Scissors



Notes: (Please read before beginning!)

  • The term “jewelry” will be used to refer to the finished product, since this crochet pattern can be used to make different objects (e.g., bracelet, necklace, anklet, etc.) 
  • The term “yarn” will be used to refer to the fiber you are crocheting with, as it may vary from embroidery thread to yarn, depending on what you choose to use. 
  • A video tutorial for this project is available.

Step 1

String the number of beads you’d like your jewelry to have onto the yarn that you are crocheting with. You can add 15+ beads to be safe for a necklace, or 10+ beads for a bracelet.

Tip: It is better to put more beads than what you need, as opposed to fewer beads. If you don’t use up all the beads at the end of the project, simply slip them off from the yarn.


Step 2

Start with a long yarn tail, which will be the tying strap. For example, you can make it 10 inches as a long “necklace chain” or you can keep it shorter for a bracelet.

Tip: It’s better to have a longer tail than what you need, as opposed to a shorter tail. You can always trim the yarn ends to be shorter at the end of the project.


Step 3

Fsc 30, or any multiple of 3, until you reach the desired length.

Notes
  • If you need help with the fsc stitch, check out my fsc video tutorial
  • There will be one bead for every 3 sts. That means you will use 10 beads with 30 fsc.


Step 4

Ch 2, turn. Pull up a bead and secure it with a chain. Then, ch 2 more. Skip 2 sts and sl st in 3rd st.


Step 5

Ch 2, pull up a bead and secure it with a chain, ch 2. Skip 2 sts and sl st in 3rd st.


Step 6

Repeat Step #5 until you reach the end of the row.


Step 7

At the end of the row, you will have arrived at the starting yarn tail. Turn your piece so that you are working back in the other direction. Use the surface sl st method to sl st across the top edge.


Step 8

Once you get to the end of the row, fasten off with a long yarn tail to match the length of the beginning tail. These will be the tying straps for your jewelry.


Step 9

Knot the ends together, or if desired, you can make an adjustable knotting closure using yarn. This easy knotting technique (video tutorial) at the back of the piece will make the straps for the jewelry adjustable in length. This method works especially well for bracelets.


Customization Idea:

Instead of a “ch 2” before and after securing the bead (in Steps 4-6), you can use any # of chains. More chains creates a wider gap between bead and main piece. Only 1 chain will have the bead sit closer to the main piece.
