My crochet beaded bracelet class didn’t happen Saturday; not enough people signed up for it. I did these at a party last week with my Crafty Moms group, and we had a great time. I’m guessing that this project may be a better bead store offering than a yarn store offering, and that’s ok.
All dressed up and no place to go? I wrote a pattern for the class, but it’s so simple that I’m going to offer it as a freebie. You can download it here. Victoriana
These bracelets are simple and quick, and they make great gifts. The fun is in choosing just the right beads for your project.
I use pre-threaded silk cord, because it’s easier to thread beads with small holes (no doubling the cord back through a needle), but do as you like. The only stitch used is a crocheted chain stitch; we had several non-crocheters at our gathering and they had no problem learning this simple stitch. Gauge is not an issue; you just go until it’s long enough.
oh my goodness. I could totally do that. It’s very kind of you to offer it for free!
They’re simple, but really pretty. Enjoy.
Thank you so much — it IS very kind of you to offer it for free. 🙂 Having worked in a bead shop eons ago, I concur that this is the kind of thing that would sell well as a class in a bead shop. Know of any that are booking classes? Because your samples are great. 🙂 I’ll be downloading that pattern for sure.
Thanks again. 🙂
