This necklace is dedicated to my friend Pam of Baabaara’s Wild & Wooly. I rescued the wonderful 4-gram, 2-ply merino art-yarn spun and plied by Pam this afternoon, on its way to the waste basket.
Right then and there, it was quickly finger-crocheted into a 5-yard rope. When I got home, I threaded through the art yarn from my stash some glass and metal beads (used a mixture of 3 packs) by Cousin Trinkettes line. Then secured both ends with silver pins through silver cone bead, and attached to Sterling Silver clasp/findings. It was assembled in less than 5 minutes.
Gauge is not important for this piece. Necklace length can be varied to suit the wearer, but, 18- to 24-inch length is recommended. You will need about 5 yard of yarn of your choice, some art beads/crystals, one jump ring, and one clasp.
Super easy! Super fast! I’ve made tons of these in the past but not in hand-spun art yarn. Sometimes I make them a little longer and tie a knot to get a different look. It can be worn in a variety of ways. Several times around a wrist makes it a beautiful furry-like bracelet
It could be used as a loose circlet around a veil or simply as an edging to customize a shirt or a tablecloth (in which case you’ll need more thread and time!) A quick and easy crocheted necklace that is a suitable project for beginners. Hope you are inspired to turn one’s trash into your own treasure
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
