Color-blocking Necklace Pattern

16 Jul

I love to do simple, but chic crochet jewelry. If you’ve seen my Etsy shop(shameless plug), you’re aware of that. Well, I do want to share some of my knowledge with the rest of you and have a simple pattern for my color blocking necklace crochet necklace:

Color block necklace

Hook: 5 mm (H)
Yarn: Pictured, Pattons Silk Bamboo (pink) and Fantasy  Naturale (blue)
(Sport, worsted or Aran yarn works [3-4 weight])
Gauge is not important for this pattern. But you can adjust Ch stitches to desired length.

The whole shebang

With MC chain 180 st
Sl st into first ch st to make a loop
Continue chaining for another 180 st
Make between 4-6 chained looped being sure to sl st for each one
weave in ends

With CC 9-11 st (the number is dependent on the “girth” of your necklaces)

For the back “closure” strip
SC 3 rows

For the side strip
SC 11 rows

To sew color blocking strips to necklace, wrap the strip around the entire “girth” of necklaces and sew the ends closed. While you are sewing them closed, be sure to put the needle through several chained stitched each time to ensure the strip stays in place. Weave in ends.

Hope you have fun with this and rock the sidewalk runway!
