Basic beaded barrette

November 5, 2008 at 4:24 pm (free patterns)

this is the basic, beginner, beaded barrette!

Open up your blank barrette. Take apart the little bar that’s there.

Join with a slip stitch & sc as many times as possible across the whole barrette, without making it too full. If it’s too full, the barrette won’t close.

Ch 3 (for first dc), and then slip up a bead, ch 1 bead stitch, dc into same space.

*2 dc in next sc, (1 dc, ch 1 bead stitch, 1 dc in next sc), and repeat across.
