This beaded bracelet pattern is quick and easy to crochet. This one row summer bracelet takes less than 5 minutes to make and looks great layered with other bracelets.
This is a fun crocheted bracelet to make and to wear!
If you are making this as a tie bracelet (rather than one with a closure), there are instructions in the Notes section to help you!
One Row Summer Bracelet Pattern
- Yarn: Coats & Clark. Aunt Lydia’s Crochet Thread, Fashion 3 (Affiliate Link: Yarnspirations). 1.76 oz (50 g) and 150 yds (137 m). 100% Mercerized Cotton. Super Fine Weight .

Bracelet measures approximately 7 inches long (not including the clasp) X 0.125 inches wide. The clasp I used adds 0.5 inches. The finished bracelet length is 7.5 inches.
Approximately 1 row per 0.125 inch and 4 chs per 1 inch
You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern – just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size, and amount of yarn used for your project will also be different.
ch – chain
R – row
sk – skip
st/sts – stitch/stitches
* to **– Repeat the instructions between the asterisks the number of times indicated. This repeat will contain multiple instructions.
[ ] – at the end of the row – the total number of stitches
( ) – important notes AND sets of stitches to be worked within one stitch, or space
You can customize this beaded bracelet easily by increasing or decreasing the number of chains you start with OR by leaving your yarn tails longer to use as ties for a tie bracelet.
If you reach the same gauge as I did, for every ½ inch you wish to increase by, chain 2 extra and add 2 extra beads.
TIP: If you are thinking of making this longer, preload a few extra beads. You can remove them if you don’t use them after you finish off the bracelet chain.
TIE BRACELET: If you are not using a clasp closure and want this to be a simple tie bracelet instead, leave a 7-inch tail of yarn and ch 3 before you begin R1 and at the end of the row, ch 3 and leave a 7-inch tail of yarn. This way you can tie the bracelet to secure it and trim the excess thread.
One Row Summer Bracelet Pattern Instructions
This beaded bracelet project is a one-row project.
Using your 3.5 mm (E) hook (or size required for gauge) and leaving a 7-inch tail of yarn:
R1: Preload your thread with one end of the closure (clasp), 29 beads and the other end of the closure (clasp). I use a bead needle to do this. Place a slip knot on your hook, slide the closure up beside your hook and ch 1 to secure the closure. *Slide 1 bead up beside your hook, ch 1**. Work from * to ** across, until you only have the other end of the closure (clasp) left. Slide the closure up beside your hook and ch 1 to secure it. Finish off. [31 chs, 29 beads, 2 closure ends]
Using your small yarn needle, weave your thread ends into the chain(s) around the clasp on each end securely. If you wish you can use a dab of glue to make sure the ends stay put.
