Hi I’m Donna Wolfe from naztazia.com Today I’m going to show you how to crochet a boho bead bracelet using Tunisian Crochet stitches. The written pattern is on my website naztazia.com you will need one ball of Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3 crochet thread and a size C hook. You’ll need 196 “E” size seed beads in a variety of colors. Plus some clear nail polish and a nice button as a closure. If you’ve seen my other beading video,s I’m a big fan of using clear nail polish at the end of crochet thread to stiffen it and then letting it dry. It becomes very easy to string beads on this way. When you purchase your beads see if they also sell an inexpensive bead reamer. If the hole of the bead is too small the tool helps make it a bit larger so that you can string it easier. I’m doing 7 of the same color beads in a row for my pattern until all 196 beads are on the thread. By the way be sure to click on the subscribe button to get notified of new videos from me each week. To begin you’ll need to make a magic ring, which is just a very loose slipknot. Chain one and make two single crochets in that ring. Pull the ends to close it. Chain one, turn your work and do one single crochet in the two stitches. Chain one, turn, and do two single crochets. In each of the next two stitches, chain one, turn your work, and make one single crochet across. Chain 1, turn your work, and as before on the two ends – do two single crochet stitches with just single crochet stitches in the middle. Chain 1, turn work, and make one single crochet stitch across. Chain one, turn work, and as before do two single crochet stitches on the two ends with just one single crochet in each of the middle stitches. You’ll have eight single crochet stitches. By the way if you’re on social media you can also find me on Facebook Instagram Pinterest and Twitter. Remove your hook and insert it like this. Insert hook and draw up loops just like this. This is the beginning of Tunisian simple stitch crochet. Once completed you will have eight loops on your hook. Yarn over and draw through one loop. Slide the first bead next to the hook, yarn over, and draw through 2 loops. Slide another bead next to the hook, yarn over, and draw through 2 loops. Slide another bead to the hook, yarn over, and pull through two loops. Repeat this process for all of the remaining loops on your hook. And here is the last one. Now insert your hook under each one of those vertical front loops and draw up a loop. You will have eight loops on your hook. Same as before – yarn over, and draw through one loop. Slide down a bead, yarn over, and draw through 2 loops. Try to keep your beads towards the back of your work when you are making your crochet stitches. And here’s our last one. I’ll do this one more time – insert your hook under these vertical bars and draw up a loop. Proceed with your next color of beads – yarn over, and draw through 2 loops on your hook. And here are three rows of beads. Proceed until you have made a total of 28 bead rows, then chain one, and single crochet in each bar across. And here is the last one – chain one and turn your work. Single crochet 2 together for both the first and last two stitches. In the middle just make one single crochet. This time we’re decreasing on the two ends instead of increasing like the first part. Chain one, and turn your work. Single crochet in each stitch across. The decreases in this section help form the other end of the tapered triangle section. Chain one, turn work, and do a single crochet 2 together in the first and last set of stitches with a single crochet in the middle. Chain one, turn work, and do one single crochet across. Chain one, turn work, and do two single crochet 2 together stitches. Chain one, turn work, make one single crochet followed by a chain 7 – for your button loop – followed by a single crochet stitch. Cut and weave in all of your ends to complete this beaded bracelet. To view this video in other languages click on the closed caption link on YouTube and turn on subtitles.
