Crochet Bead Necklace

In my pursuit of all things crafty, I stumbled across a post about how to make a crochet bead necklace and knew I had to try it.  I mean, how hard could it be?

The materials you need to make this are some crochet thread, I used Aunt Lydia’s crochet thread in size Classic 10 (I clearly bought MORE than enough), a size B crochet hook, and some beads.

First need to string the beads onto the thread.  I ran into some trouble trying to do this as the head of the needles I tried to use were too big for the opening of the smaller beads.  I resorted to getting out a needle threader and doing it that way.  Took a little longer but worked just fine.

Then begin with a simple chain stitch, I started with 10.  I then brought a bead up and did a chain stitch to anchor it.  I then crocheted 3 more chain stitches and then pulled another bead up.  I continued on until I had used all the beads.

I think it turned out pretty cute and it was super easy to make!

Total cost of this project was $8.98. 

$2.99 for the thread and I obviously have a TON left over so you could purchase a much smaller amount.  I have this crafter’s fear of not having enough to complete the project and then if I go back to get more they won’t have what I need.  So yes, I overbought.  I spent $5.99 for the beads. I had a coupon for the thread so I got it for $1.79 at Michaels and the beads were on sale for $2.99 at Joanns so my total cost was $4.78.  I have some beads left over to make some earrings and a ridiculous amount of crochet thread for a future project. 

What crafts have you made lately?  Feel free to share!

  1. Love it! I’m going to have to try this. I did one with a thin gold jewelry wire. It turned out pretty too. Something else for you to try 🙂 The stitches were not as tight, it had more of an open twisty wire look with beads.

  2. Love it! I might have to try this. I made one similar with thin gold jewelry wire. Another thing for you to try 🙂 The stitches were not as tight, it looked more like twisty wire with beads, but very pretty.
