If you can crochet a chain, you can crochet this easy strand of seed beads with linen yarn and make a sweet design that may be worn as a multi-stranded necklace or bracelet.
Use one color bead or have fun creating bead mixes. For the sample, I selected 3 colors of TOHO 6/0 seed beads and made quick mix, which was randomly strung on the yarn before crocheting.
Have fun designing endless combinations of colors. Match any outfit with this delicate strand of color.
Wrap the necklace around your wrist several times to make a happy, multi-stranded bracelet.
The strand is 80” long, 40” in circumference.
This is a great project for kids and adults alike. Enjoy!

Approximately 15 yards of sport or fingering weight linen yarn. The sample was crocheted with Quince & Co. Sparrow.
Size C crochet hook.
200 TOHO 6/0 seed beads, dental floss threader and beading surface.
Fray check fabric glue. Scissors.

Sport or fingering weight linen, hemp, cotton or silk and blends of many fibers may also be used. As long as the fiber strand is smooth enough for the beads to stiring on easily, many different yarns will work for this design.
