This crochet beaded bracelet is so unbelievably easy to make you can have it done in 15 minutes flat.
The instructions are for the one in the photo, and this will please any little girl, being simply made from acrylic yarn and plastic beads.
However there is nothing wrong with you getting creative with different threads and beads.
This makes for a brilliant quick and easy last minute present and there is so much variation you can put in it to suit the person or outfit it is for.
Try fine cotton with a smaller hook, and more but smaller beads; leather thong and wooden beads or a really classy version made with shiny thread or even silver wire and crystal beads.
Or try with ribbon and a variety of big bold or "blingy" beads. Leave long ends of ribbon to tie in a large bow.
For a bracelet very similar to the one in the photo you will need 10 - 12 large beads, some double knitting yarn (UK weight) and a largish crochet hook.
Thread 8 to 10 beads onto your ball (or scrap) of yarn, depending on how large you want the bracelet. 10 beads should fit an adult.
Make a slip knot making sure you leave a long end, and insert your hook.
Slide the first bead right up to the hook and make one chain stitch. If you don't know how to make a chain stitch click here and scroll to the bottom of the page for instructions. Practise a bit first before you attempt to crochet around a bead if crochet is new to you.
Make another chain on its own and then slip the next bead to the hook before working another chain. Continue until you have worked in all the beads.
Break off the yarn and fasten off making sure again to leave a long length. Knot the ends together near the chain stitches and knot a bead onto each of the yarn ends.
