loops & threads® barcelona™ beaded crochet chain necklace

You won’t need jewelry tools to make this simple (yet stunning!) necklace. Instead, you’ll use a crochet hook! We’ve partnered with Craftsy® to show you how to DIY this beaded crochet chain necklace with our Loops & Threads® Barcelona™ yarn. Take a look at the video and instructions to make your very own!
Step 1

Using a size J/6mm crochet hook, make a crochet chain that measures 13 yards long.

Click here to view the diagram.  

TIP: Here’s how to make a chain stitch: 

  • Hold the crochet hook in your right hand and make a slip knot on the hook.
  • Bring the yarn over your hook from back to front and grab it with the hook.
  • Draw the hooked yarn through the slip knot and onto your hook. This makes one chain stitch.
  • Repeat these steps until you have the number of stitches you want.
Step 2
Cut the yarn, leaving a few inches of tail. With your hook, draw the tail through the loop on your hook. Remove the hook and pull on the tail to tighten.
Step 3

Thread the yarn tail at the beginning of your chain onto a tapestry needle, then thread about 30 beads onto the crochet chain.

Step 4

Starting with the beginning end of the chain, lay your chain on a flat work surface and form a loop that’s about 32" in circumference. As you continue to wrap the chain, layer it over itself in a loop. Slide the beads as you wrap, so that you’re placing about two beads on each loop/layer of chain.

TIP: When you reach the end of your chain, you may find there’s not quite enough left to make a final complete loop. If this happens, then undo the end of the chain and unravel it back until it reaches the top of the loops. Now, you can fasten off the chain again.

Step 5
Tie the beginning and ending tails of the chain together with a square knot.
Step 6
Wrap a piece of yarn tightly around the knot and, at the same time, around all the loops of the crochet chain, When you’re done, you’ll have formed a wrapped section that’s about 1½" long. This will serve as a decorative way to hide the knot and it will also help to keep the layers of the necklace in place.
