Make: Vibrant Bohemian Necklace

2016-06-01 14.11.17I have a huge stash of embroidery floss in all colors possible so I’ve decided to create quick and fun project using one of my favorite color combos. It took me approximately 40 minutes to crochet and furnish this lovely piece. Make one yourself using my free instructions from the text below.

SUPPLIES

  • Brass bead
  • Brass chain
  • Embroidery floss (four different colors)
  • 3 mm hook
  • Tapestry needle

PATTERN

Thread  on brass bead and make a magic circle.

Row 1: into magic circle ch 1, sc 16 – color A (gold)

Row 2: ch 3, dc in same st, *dc in next st, 2 dc in next* to the end of the row (22 dc) –color B (peach)

Row 3: ch 5 (tr plus ch 1 space), *tr, ch 1* to the end of the row –color C (rusty brown)

Row 4: in ch 1 spaces make *sc, ch 2(make a picot), sc*, repeat in each ch1 space to the end of the row – color D (light blue)

Now, attach your brass chain to the first and last sc of row 4.

This is pretty much it! You can alternatively choose to block your finished piece before attaching the chain or use different kind of cotton for even better(stiffer) results as embroidery is quite delicate. Enjoy your necklace and feel free to share your thoughts and pictures in the comments bellow!
