Beaded Double Crochet Tutorial

Beaded Double Crochet - Crochet Stitch Tutorial

Do you love crocheting and beading? Well then, you just combine the two. This post will explain to you how I crocheted the beaded double crochet (BDC). It is actually very easy.

What you will need:

So first you will need some beads that are 1/8 inches in diameter, some #2 yarn, a needle (I used a bendable one with an adjustable eye, see the video to get a better idea) and a 2.75mm hook. That’s all.


Color nature with Copic markers!


First you add the beads onto the yarn using the needle and push them back as much as you can.

Then you either make a foundation double crochet (fdc) or a chain with a row of double crochet. Then I slip stitched to connect the ends and and go in rounds.


Then for the second round, started with making a chain of 3 and then I used normal double crochets, but every other one I added a bead. Very easy.

So when you make a double crochet, you yarn over, pull through, yarn over, pull through 2, add the bead, yarn over and pull through 2. Done. To understand exactly I added the beads, please watch the video below.

    1. This weekend I will publish the pattern. Mine is a wrist band. It is very pretty?
      It can also be used for headbands, gloves, hats, scarfs. I do not know if I would use it for blankets. Also washing needs to be considered. I guess hand wash only. And mild detergent.
      Hope that helps?

  1. Hi! I have made a few crochet bracelets with beads and they are really beautiful! I would like to try this next! Very pretty and unique. I will need to head out to the store for #2 yarn because I only have #4 and crochet thread. I am excited to try this – maybe for a hat! Thanks for sharing! H~ P.S. Do I detect a slight German accent?
