Free Pattern's Outline for a Crochet Necklace

Well, this is quite different from the "Easiest Crochet Necklace" I've shown in the other post, and I've tried to write down an outline of this one's pattern.
For any question just contact me.. I know that probably this is not so clear!
Anyway, here it is:

Materials:
Less than one ball of any colour cotton yarn (worsted weight)
4.00mm hook

Necklace:
Ch77, sc in second ch from hook and in the next 3chs.
Ch76, sc in the 4th ch at the beg of previous ch loop, and in next 3chs, ch1, turn.
Sc in first sc and in next 3 sc, ch80, sc in the 4 sc at the beg of previous row, ch1, turn.
Sc in first sc and in next 3 sc, ch84, sc in the 4 sc at the beg of previous row, ch3 and sl st on the other side of the same closure piece to make a button hole.
Sew a button on the opposite closure piece of the button hole.
Make a flower of any kind (mines are just improvised!) to embellish the necklace, and sew it on the four chains strands.

I've made it even in a bright purple cotton yarn, and I'm really happy with the both.

These are very easy, and I hope you won't have problems making them.
Enjoy!

Dgd has been wanting to make a necklace like this ever since she saw your other one! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful pattern!

lucky bear said...

Love this necklace and am going to make one right now! Thanks so much for posting pattern.

Also love the granny square bag - I have just finished one made of small squares sewn together and thought that I might try a huge square but wasn't sure how it would look. Looks great! Am gonna make one of those too!

Thanks for the inspiration.

hey, I saw you on CRAFTzine.com - I just wanted to say, this is beautiful.
I've just been through all your posts, and I am amazed at all the beautiful contemporary patterns you offer for free. not a lot of people do that these days, and I'd just like to say thank you : )

creativeyarn said...

Many thanks for all your nice comments!
I like to share creativity with people and I think it should be this way for any kind of knowledge!
I've learned to knit and crochet thanks to internet, so I feel like it's a good thing letting others using my patterns..
many thanks again, and feel free to ask for any problem with this pattern!

Angry Asian said...

thank you for this pattern. it took me two tries to get it just right and will plan to make more as gifts for my gfs.

Mandie said...

I adore everything you have done here!

Can you recommend the flower pattern you used for this? The ones i've been finding are pointy flowers.

creativeyarn said...

Hello Mandie, and thanks a lot for your comment!
I didn't really use a particular pattern for this flower, as sometimes I just keep on working and see what comes out!
Anyway you can use this flower's pattern that I've done for another of mine necklace pattern.
Hope you'll enjoy it!
ciao and many thanks again!

Found you via One Pretty Thing! This is great! I have a cone of cotton thread that I have been making granny squares with. I'll take a break from the grannies to try this one!

Jaimee Drew said...

This is just so cute- I know I'll try it at some point. Thanks for sharing!

Hi, my grandmother and I love your flower. Do you know how we can find a pattern to crochet it? And on your explanation of how to crochet it, what does sc mean?? Sorry, my grandmother has been crocheting for a long time, but she doesn't know how to read how to do it. Sorry again if this is confusing. Please reply, we want to make these for a birthday present.

Why can't I figure this one out? The part where the chains are conected by sc stitching seems to elude me. I can't picture it and I can't seem to do it either! Help!

creativeyarn said...

Here's a link to an image of a bracelet made with the same pattern as this necklace..maybe it's clearer as it's laying down on a table!
The bracelet has more than 4 sc at each side:

Hope it will help all of you who are having problems figuring out this pattern!
Ciao and happy new year!

You're very sweet to try and help me ... are you actually working left to right during the single crochet's on one side of the necklace or am I still wrong?! (I know this is crazy, but I can't wrap my brain around this)! Thanks.

creativeyarn said...

Try this out..maybe it will be clear with this diagram of the pattern I've been drawing down for you!!

Hallelujah! I finally get it. Sorry, but I could not see it in my head, so my eyes would read the instructions and it would not translate to my hands. Thank you SO much! I love all your patterns -- keep up the good work!

Anonymous said...

I really like your patterns, but I can't seem to figure them out. I'm trying to figure out the necklace and the headband. Could you please put up pictures of each step, so I can see how it is supposed to look.

Liz said...

Hello! I absolutely love all of your work. I made this necklace for a friend of mine and she adored it! The one thing I noticed was that as she wore it the flower dragged the necklace down so that instead of staying put up around the collar bone, the whole thing shifted so that the flower ended up in her throat area. Does this happen with yours? If not, what is the trick to get it to stay put on the collar bone? Thanks for all your amazing work!

creativeyarn said...

Ciao Liz,
the secret is to make a flower small and light weight, so it won't move from the side of the neck..
best wishes!

Thank you for this simple yet lovely pattern. This necklace is my first crochet project by the way (long time knitter, first time crocheter) and I credit you for whetting my appetite for this craft. I really like your other patterns too--especially your hand warmers. Your designs are so very pretty AND inspirational. Thanks :)

I just ADORED this necklace! I made one up (after snagging a simple but gorgeous flower patten from another blog) and posted it to my own blog.

Also, is there a trick to keep the flower portion of the necklace from weighing down the necklace and sliding it around?

Hi I am finally ordering some materials but am confused about the sizes. You are in the UK right? If so, when you say 2.5mm hook what is that to me in the US... also your worsted weight for these Necklaces need what yarn in US... I am confused and dont want to order the wrong thing. Thanks

I need help. I got to: Ch76, sc in the 4th ch at the beg of previous ch loop, and in next 3chs, ch1, turn.
Sc in first sc and in next 3 sc, ch80, sc in the 4 sc at the beg of previous row, ch1, turn. I think I connected the first 2 chains correctly, but not sure. Not a clue after that. HELP!

I found your pattern via Pinterest. Thanks for sharing it! It crochets up pretty fast and my 5yr old loved counting the chains with me. :D

That is so way cool. I am new to crochet, in fact still trying to get it, but knit like a crazy woman. I have got to try this, I just so happen to have 3 balls of small crochet yarn and I am going to practice on that. Thanks for sharing.

Christine Senter said...

Those are just too cool. I've got to give that one a try. Thanks for the pattern and the idea.

Coffee Lover said...

Thanks for the pretty pattern, a little awkward at first but got it on the second try (got twisted the first time;).

wholesale flowers toronto said...

A fresh flower arrangement won't last forever, but you can take some simple steps to prolong its beauty at least several extra days. In fact, you should expect long lasting flowers such as carnations, chrysanthemums, alstroemeria and even roses to last a full week to ten days. Spring or bulb flowers such as iris, tulips and daffodils should be expected to last three to five days.

I found your page while looking for pretty ways to use smaller balls of yarn up and I absolutely love the bracelet/necklace idea! I'm making the bracelet right now but can't seem to figure out how to work button holes into the pattern... Do I chain and skip? Or is there a secret I'm missing?
