This is a step-by-step tutorial pattern for a hand crocheted beads, which can be used as attractive, original jewellery (beads, necklace etc.), on a baby’s pram (cot, push chair etc.) as a toy, decoration or garland. There are two designs available for the beads.
The pattern can be made up with any yarn. The instructions have been tested on several types of yarn and thread. If you use a different yarn brand or type, use an average hook size between the smallest and largest on the yarn label. Variations and experimentations are unlimited!
The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it. It is written in English using Standard US crochet terminology (with UK crochet terminology if necessary).
Skill level: easy (you only need basic crochet skills).
Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn) about 10 g for 1 bead; 2) crochet hook (I used hook size H8/5mm); 3) curtain rings 1.7-1.8 cm (17-18 mm); optional: 4) thin tapestry needle with wide hole; 5) decorative tape (ribbon, band) or cord about 125 cm long (I used satin tape 1 cm and 0.7 cm wide); 6) any wooden, plastic, natural stone beads; 7) clear nail polish.
The approximate size of the crocheted bead is about 5 cm x 3.5 cm (about 1.9 inch x 1.3 inch), half-bead 4 cm x 2 cm (about 1.5 inch x 0.7 inch). The size of bead may vary depending on the type of yarn, hook size and how tightly you crochet.
