Crochet Round Beaded Bracelet Pattern


More Patterns Coming

Y'all have really inspired me! I noticed today that the last time I posted a pattern it was almost a year ago-April 29, 2011. So, I'm thinking perhaps I just get inspired in the spring. I also noticed that when I post patterns y'all come 'round to get 'em. So I'm working now to write up some of the other patterns I've made. I'm almost done with my fusion craft Batman hat pattern. After that comes my snake scarf that I made for the kiddos I hope.

Yarn: Cascade Fixation, less than 1 skein.

11 Beads: 12x8 oval wood beads, or any you like. 11 beads for small wrist, 15 for larger. Beaded single crochet: Insert hook into stitch, yarn over, pull loop through stitch, push up bead, yarn over, pull through all loops.
