Beaded Boho Cuff Bracelet Pattern

When you purchase through links on my site, I may earn an affiliate commission. Here’s how it works.

Sometimes I want to work on quick projects – and apparently today is the day! Bracelet number 2 coming your way 🙂 This free crochet pattern is for a Boho Beaded Cuff Bracelet and I have included 3 different sizes because I know we all have different hand sizes. If you do not like cuff style bracelets which you have to slide over your hand to wear, that is ok too! You can easily add a magnetic closure to the cuff ends instead to make it removable.

I didn’t have time to film a video tutorial today for this but I was able to snap some photos to demonstrate the 2 main steps to make the bracelet. Step 1 (for Row 1) is demonstrated in Tutorial 1 at the end of this post and shows you how to slide the bead onto the chain 2.  I also created a slideshow for YouTube showing this step.  Step 2 (for Row 2) is demonstrated in Tutorial 2 at the end of this post and shows you how to work the single crochet into sc from Row 1, between each bead.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and have time to make some bracelets for yourself, your friends and family. I would love to see them so if you are on Ravelry please add a project page 🙂 Thanks! ♥ Rhondda Boho Beaded Cuff Bracelet Pattern FB

Notes

  • Please see the images at the end of the post to understand how you make the bead slide over the ch-2. This does involve removing your hook temporarily from the working loop to get the bead into the correct position. It is a little finicky the first time you do it but it becomes much easier afterwards 🙂 I have also created a slideshow on YouTube using the images if you prefer viewing them in this medium. I have not had a chance to film a video to demonstrate this technique.
  • There are 2 Photo Tutorials at the end of this post. One Tutorial (Tutorial 1) for Row 1 and one tutorial (Tutorial 2) for Row 2.
  • If you want to add the magnetic clasp / closure to your bracelet please leave a 6-8 inch tail of yarn before you begin R1. Once you have completed the bracelet following the instructions below, sew your closure to each end securely.
  • The bracelet can be made to any length. Based on the gauge for this pattern, for every 1 bead you want to add, you need 3 chain stitches. The stitch multiple is the number of beads multiplied by 3 chains + 2. So 16 beads multiplied by 3 chains equals 48 chains + 2 equals a starting chain of 50.

  1. Rhondah,
    I love your bracelet and am very interested in the other one you wrote about.
    Looking forward to hearing from you
    Cheers
    Francien

  2. I will certainly be making a few of these with different colour beads. And I may make some polymer beads in my own style that would be lovely.

  3. Hi Hilary, Yes ♥ My Nana was actually born in Pontycymer (1921) and I was named after the Rhondda Valley. That is so neat that your sister’s name is spelled the same too. I’ve never met anyone (or known anyone) who spelled it the same as the Valley other than me. When we visited with her cousins in 1986 (I was 12 at the time) they all called me Rhon’the’ because of the ‘dd’. She always pronounced it Rhondda (with the D sound) here (in Ontario, Canada.). I’m happy the tutorial is helpful 🙂 Have a lovely week! Rhondda

  4. This has nothing to do with your excellent tutorial – I just noticed how you spell your name and I got all excited because that’s how my sister’s name is spelt, too … what I consider the correct spelling, after the Rhondda Valley in Wales. Anyway, like I said, live your Titian, love your name!

  5. I Simply LOVE this Site!!! Thank You for sharing…Great Patterns and lots to learn, and improve one skills, Thank. Thank You
    Sincerely, Coco O’Connor

  6. Yes they do work up quick once you’ve done one and know what to do. I’ve made several now for myself, my dd, ddil, and dgd’s since I posted that last thank you message.I saw this again today in your weekly email so wanted to thank you once more. This makes such a great gift

  7. Very welcome Ruth 🙂 They work up pretty quick once you know how to get those beads on the hook I think and these beads are bigger and easier to work with too 🙂 Have a great day! Rhondda

  8. what a great bracelet! Thank you for posting and than you that it’s free. It’s not difficult either which surprised me because it does look like it would be hard to do..thanks again
