Updated January 09, 2018

Are you one of those girls who stands in her closet looking at all her clothes and says "I have no clothes"? Eventually you find the perfect outfit, but then you have to find the matching accessories to go with that outfit. Once you get to your jewelry box you think the same thing and say "I have no jewelry". If you're tired of saying that then you should learn how to crochet with beads and buttons. You can make your own jewelry so you have something to wear with any outfit any time of year. If you buy jewelry at a fancy jeweler sometimes you might feel it's too nice to wear with certain outfits, but with free crochet patterns you can design any kind of jewelry you want. Let's take a look at some of these fabulous patterns you can make. Are you so excited to learn how to crochet with beads and buttons? I know I am!

Let's first learn how to crochet with beads and buttons:

Crocheting with beads and buttons allows you to get creative with your crochet designs. There are of course a few different methods you can use to crochet with beads or buttons so you have to decide which method is going to be easiest for you. Once you find your free crochet pattern figure out how many beads you want to use in your bracelet or necklace then string those beads on. You'll then insert your crochet hook into the back loop of the stitch, yarn over and pull through. Once this is done you'll then slide the bead up close to the loops, yarn over and pull through both loops. This holds the bead in place on the wrong side of your work. If you need a visual, the video below will do the trick.

I love combining my two all time passions crochet and beading. This set of patterns for 16 bead and button crochet jewelry accessories was a great find on your site. I am definitely putting the featured bracelet on my to do now list. Cant wait to see how it turns out.

I have done a little crocheting with beads, but not enough to be proficient in it. I can't wait to try some of these awesome patterns. I think crocheting with beads is a great way to enhance the crochet, and give yourself something different to try once in awhile. All of these patterns look beautiful.

Wow I love all of these 16 How to Crochet with Beads and Buttons patterns. The patterns are well written and quite easy to follow and understand. Some even have pictures or videos to help show what to do. When at resale stores I look for beads and save them for crafts just like this. I'm looking forward to doing a few of these and I think it will add some more interest in learning for the grandkids. Thank you so much for sharing these free crochet patterns.

Thank you so much. I use to make jewelry with wires and beads. Then I went back to my first love which is crochet. I was thinking if crocheting jewelry but the instruction books are very expensive. Being on a fixed income, I just couldn't afford them. Now I see this for free. Marvelous! Thank you so very much, you made my day!

thank you so much for this. i make jewelry .. now i have something new to try :D

i want to know why i cant print out the button necklace the pattern comes up but i cant print it

You have to print the pattern from the original designer's blog post. We do not have a print option. Thanks, Editor at AllFreeCrochet.

This tutorial looks so easy. I make my own earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. Now I have a new look. Thank you so much!!!
