One of my first crochet patterns was a beaded headband. This was back in 2006 and my camera was crappy. I decided to remake it, and I also added some more pics for those who need visuals on how to crochet with beads.
- Small amount of WW yarn – I used hemp (2 oz. or less)
- G Hook, approximately
- 44 6mm beads (i used pearls)
- yarn needle
Note: You can add or subtract from the beginning chain to make it longer or shorter, as long as it is an even number. I made the chain, then sl st it together and made sure it fit my head before continuing.
prestring about 44 beads (may wanna do a few extra just to be sure)
Ch 88, sl st to form a ring (make sure it doesn’t get twisted)
Row 1: ch 1 (counts as sc.) sc across (88 total)
Row 2: ch 2 (counts as hdc.) pull 1 bead up to the hook. c 1. skip next st. *hdc in next st. pull 1 bead up to the hook. ch 1, skip next st.* repeat from * across. sl st last ch 1 to top of beginning ch 2. (44 hdc and 44 ch)
Row 3: ch 1 (counts as sc.) sc in each ch1 space and hdc across. (88 sc)
Weave in ends.
If you are worried about the beads popping to the wrong side, just know that they won’t once you’re wearing the headband (see above)!
This works up so fast and is a good idea to sell for profit! Just please give me credit to the free pattern via a link. Please do not distribute the pattern as your own, but I have no problem with these being made and sold as long as there is proper pattern credit. We’re all struggling “artists”!
