How to Crochet Beaded Bracelets

In my twenties, I was really interested (amongst many metaphysical topics) in the healing properties of gemstones, and lately, as part of writing The Intention chapter of The Knit Show Book, I’ve revisited that interest. Unrelated, a couple of weeks ago, our Ask Me Monday topic covered pre-stringing beads for stitching with them. So, for this week’s show, I thought I’d combine the two focuses by sharing a crochet beaded bracelets tutorial incorporating beautiful hand-dyed tencel and natural hemp blend yarns, with several stones for energy, vision, and self-discovery. Here’s to the healing of hooking!
