Bedizened Brooch

Designed by Kathy Merrick

Although this pretty accessory is a thread crochet project, it still works up quickly in exaggerated double crochet stitches. If you’ve never tried adding beads to your crochet, this is a great project to ease you into fancifying your stitches! Make several and attach them to hats, bags, or a headband.
