Crochet Beaded Wrist Warmers Pattern

*******************************************************

Crochet Beaded Wrist Warmers

Image hosting by Photobucket

Size 3 crochet thread - I recommend DMC Senso
Large seed beads sufficient for the pattern you choose.

This pattern produces 32 rows of beading, with 29 beads possible per row. (32x29)This is very adjustable - in fact I recommend that you adjust the pattern to fit your wrists, not mine! :)

I have found that graph paper works great for creating a pattern, and I have found inspiration in everything from knitting books to old video games. Pick a pattern that you will enjoy!

String required number of beads on thread. I recommend using a beading needle - it makes it MUCH easier! Don't forget this step, because you CANNOT string the beads on later - at least, not easily!

Chain 30.
Row 1: SC through the 2nd chain from hook and back along the chain to the end (29 sc). Turn.
Row 2: Ch 1 (1st SC). SC back along row, in back loops only, placing beads according to the graphed pattern. Turn.
Row 3: Ch 1 (1st SC). SC in back loops only (29 SC). Turn. (No beads on this row!)
Rows 4 -64: repeat rows 2-3, following the charted bead pattern on all even numbered rows. Bind off in your favorite method, and stitch ends together to form a warm, beaded cuff.

Thank you
Thank you for the beautiful and seemingly easy pattern. I have always wanted to try something with beads. I recently (6 days ago) had a lumpectomy for breast ca. I want to make a pair of these wrist warmers for my surgeon. I will probably make them longer, but love the beaded part. thank you, thank you.

What size hook did you use?

Hook size!
I didn't realize I didn't post it! *looks silly*
I used a steel #6 I do believe. I tend to use either a 6 or a 7. If nothing else, vary the hook size so that one row is about 5 inches long. (or the length that suits you!)
Good luck!

An alternative method for stringing the beads is to stiffen the end of the thread with glue. I like cyanoacrylate (Krazy Glue) for the purpose.

Pretty insightful post. Never thought that it was this simple after all. I had spent a good deal of my time looking for someone to explain this subject clearly and you’re the only one that ever did that. Kudos to you! Keep it up
