Retired - Halloween Crochet Bracelet

PROJECT B2060
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
In case you don't want to wear head to toe black and orange this Fall, you can still be festive with this fun crochet bracelet and interchangeable charm.
Instructions
To make this project, please watch the video: How to Do Spiral Crochet with Beads for Righties. If you are left handed please watch the left-handed video here.
  1. Pre-load your beads onto the S-Lon. To make a bracelet that is 6.5"" you will need about 260 beads. Using your big eye needle, thread about 12 beads on to the cord. Then pick up the closed jump ring. Continue to thread the remaining beads you will need. There is no pattern for the way the beads are done for this particular bracelet. If you are adjusting the size of the bracelet you may want to do a trial run of how many beads you will need per inch of crochet, as explained in the video. I recommend mixing all three tubes of seed beads and loading all of them.
  2. As shown in the video, circular bead crochet 6.5" worth of beading or however long you want the beaded portion of your bracelet to be. Please remember that the clasp will add almost another inch.
  3. When you get to the end of your crochet, and you end it as shown in the video, leave at least a 10 inch tail and cut the S-Lon from the spool.
  4. Onto the tail, thread a big eye needle. String one bead onto the thread, pull down so it rests against your crochet. With the needle, go through the loop at the base of your toggle bar and then back down through the bead and into your crochet. Tie a discrete knot within your crochet. Now go back up through the bead and loop on the toggle bar again and back down through the bead. Tie another knot. Work your tail into the crochet, tying several discreet knots within your crochet. Keep working the tail into the crochet until you can no longer see it. Snip off any excess thread.
  5. Repeat the previous step with the other part of your toggle clasp.
  6. Finally attach the charm by opening one jump ring, adding the charm and closing it around the closed jump ring that is in the bracelet.
