Crochet bracelet and earrings. Free pattern.

 This set was made for my dear friend Adela.


 I painted 1.5 mm wood beads with acrylic paint, crocheted them over using cotton thread and 1 mm  hook.
Then I put seed beads on 3 of them and some stitches on others.
A saw a few ways to crochet a bead over. This one I figured out myself, trying to follow other patterns I didn't like.
Pattern for beads:
1 rnd: 4 chain, connect in a ring
2 rnd: 1 ch, 8 Sc in the ring = 8 Sc
3 rnd: 1 ch, work 2 Sc in every second Sc = 12 Sc
4 rnd: 1 ch, work 2 Sc in every third Sc = 16 Sc
5 rnd: 1 ch,work 2 in every 4th Sc = 20 Sc
6 rnd: 20 Sc
7 rnd: 20 Sc
8 rnd: [3 Sc, 2 Sc tog] 4 times = 16 Sc
9 rnd: [2 Sc, 2 Sc tog] 4 times = 12 Sc
10 rnd: [1 Sc, 2 Sc tog] 4 times = 8 Sc
11 rnd: [2 Sc tog] 4 times = 4 Sc

Here is another bracelet:




Use color and beads you like and make it for yourself!

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I love the color combination and the stitches. It reminds me of Christmas time.

    How do you do the stitches? Do you start them before finishing the crochet or do them once the bead shape is complete?

    Keep up the wonderful work!

  2. Thank you! I did the stitches after beads were finished, before I got them together. I did stripes using 1 thread and making flowers I think, I used 2 or 3 threads together.
    My friend ordered those for Christmas, that's true! :)
    They remind me about old theater in St. Petersburg: this is the color of curtains and seats.
