Spring is here and maybe, like mine, your accessories wardrobe could do with a little brightening up, a little colour injection to put a spring into your step.

I saw a really good idea (well, I thought so!) in a German Magazine the other day and, after some tweaking by yours truly, I thought I share it with you here.

All you need are some scarps of yarn (4ply cotton works best), a 3mm crochet hook and some beads or buttons.

Let’s get started: (UK Terms)

Chain 53 (or if you use thinner yarn ch 63)

Work 5htr into 5th ch from hook, *skip 2ch, ss in next ch, skip 2ch, 5htr in next ch; rep. from * along to last ch, work 10htr into last ch.



Don’t turn your work but continue by working on the other side of the chain (as shown in photo above) in exactly the same way as before: *skip 2ch, ss in next ch, skip 2ch, 5htr in next ch; rep. from * to end, ss to beg.

Ch6 and ss to make a loop.


Now comes the fun bit!

Let your imagination run wild and decorate with beads or buttons!


A quick little project that’s fun to make. Try different yarns, different colours and different decorations. You could make these for little girls birthday party goodie bags, or even teach little girls to make for themselves.


Whatever you do…have fun!

    those turned out sooo cute! It is going to be a rainy weekend around here, so I think this will be a weekend craft project for me and my granddaughter. Thanks for the pattern. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
