PRECIOSA Rocailles for bracelet number 2


Step 1

String the seed beads onto the crocheting yarn according to the pattern in the illustration (fig. no. 1a the pattern, fig. no. 1b the pattern). String pattern no. 1a 16x (the pattern is crocheted in a circle with 6 seed beads) and pattern no. 1b 30x (the pattern is crocheted in a circle with 5 seed beads) to create a tube that is 16 cm long.

Step 2

Make the basic loop followed by 2 chain loops without any seed beads (fig. nos. 2a and 2b). Thread the hook through the first loop and then crochet 6 short columns into the first loop so that a circle forms (fig. no. 2c).

Step 3

Add 6 seed beads to the 1st seed bead row (fig. no. 3a). Crochet a slip stitch behind both threads (Vs): hook in under the thread, move 1 seed bead from above and make a slip stitch. Complete the entire row in the same way (fig. nos. 3b-3c).

Step 4

Continue with the second row. Poke the hook into the loop to the left of the first seed bead, twist the seed bead downwards and to the right, move it as close as possible to the next seed bead, catch the thread with the hook and crochet a slip knot (pull the yarn through both loops at once), (fig. no. 4a). Add the seed beads to the second row. Crochet slip knots with seed beads in a spiral. If all the seed beads in all the rows have their holes turned in the direction of crocheting (upwards), you have proceeded correctly (fig. no. 4b). Insert an eye pin into the tube to attach the cap (fig. nos. 4c-4d).

Step 5

Crochet and use up all the seed beads. Insert an eye pin with an eye into the tube, thread the remainder of the yarn into the needle and secure the opening, tie a knot and cut off the remainder of the yarn (fig. nos. 5a-5b). String a cap and a decorative bead onto an eye pin (fig. no. 5c), create an eye with the pliers, into which you should then place a ring and the ribbon. Do the same at the other end of the tube (fig. no. 5d). Crochet a second tube and complete it in the same way (fig. nos. 5e-5f).

Step 6

Create the linked pendants made of flowers and seed beads (fig. no. 6a). Attach the pendants to the larger beads using the connecting rings (fig. nos. 6b-6c). Thread the ribbon through the end connecting rings. The bracelet is closed with a bow (fig. nos. 6d-6f).
