How to Crochet Beaded Fringe
From your Crochet Guide

Beaded fringe is showing up on dress and skirt hemlines in today's fashion world, as well as for trimming accessories such as purses. Here you can see how to make your own.

Difficulty Level: Hard    Time Required: 1 hour

Here's How:
  1. Estimate number of beads needed and string the beads onto the thread before beginning.
  2. Crochet a chain of desired length.
  3. Single crochet in second chain from hook, single crochet in each chain across.
  4. Decide how many beads you will use in each fringe for the length of fringe you want (remember, each fringe length will fold in half).
  5. Chain 1 to turn. (Wrong side of piece is facing you), single crochet in first single crochet, * draw up the number of beads you will be using in one fringe, single crochet in each of next two single crochet *, repeat * to * across row; end with a single crochet in last stitch. End off.
  6. Attach by sewing or crocheting the completed fringe edging to the piece you are trimming. See Joining link below for tips on ways to attach to a crocheted piece. If you are attaching to fabric, you will need to sew the fringe on by hand or by machine.


  1. When crocheting bead row, wrong side is facing you and the fringe will be on the side of the work that is facing away from you. It is necessary when crocheting with beads to have the right side of the work (side beads will show on) facing away from you.
  2. It can be difficult to work with too many beads prestrung at a time, so if you are making a very long fringe you may need to string what you can work with comfortably, then end off, string more beads and reattach thread as needed.
