The White Flower Necklace

I'm finally back!
It has been too hot here in Rome even to think about working on something..
Moreover I've been on holiday for a while and wanted just to relax without doing anything!
Now, I've got something new for you:

A very dainty necklace made by three chains with leaves and a white flower, that closes by a crochet ring behind the flower through which pass the strands.
It was quite hard to explain it, but I hope you'll understand this pattern.
For any problem just contact me, and I'll be happy to help!
Here it is:

Materials:
4.00mm hook
Cream White Cotton yarn (worsted weight) for the flower
Green Cotton yarn (worsted weight) for the stems and ring

The Necklace:

Crochet Ring:
Wind the yarn 5 times around the left hand's forefinger and the middle finger.
Insert the hook under the 5 strands in the direction of the palm, yarn over hook and fasten the strands with a simple crochet stitch.
Work 24 sc in the ring made by the 5 strands.
Sl st to first sc to close ring.
Don't cut the yarn.

Three Stems with Leaves:
1st Stem: Chain 115.
Leaf: Sc in second chain from hook, 1hdc, 1dc, 1 hdc, 1sc. Turn and work 1sc, 1hdc, 1dc, 1hdc, 1sc in the opposite side of the just worked stitches. Sl st to first sc to close the leaf. Cut yarn and weave in end.
2nd Stem: Attach yarn on the sc of the ring that is next to the first stem chain. Chain 105.
Work as for the first leaf.
3rd Stem: Attach yarn on the sc of the ring that is next to the second stem chain. Chain 125.
Work as for the first leaf.

The Flower:
Bottom Layer:
Chain 3, sl st to make ring.
Chain 3 and work 11 dc in ring. Sl st to third chain of beginning ch3. (12dc)
*4dc in next dc, sc in next dc*. Repeat from * but ending with a sl st on last dc to close round.
Cut yarn and weave in end.
Top layer:
Chain 4, sl st to make ring.
*Chain 3 and sc in ring*, repeat from* four times more. Sl st to close round. (You'll have 5 petals)
Work in each chain loop of previous round: 1sc, 3dc, 1sc.
Cut yarn and weave in end.
Sew the two flower leyers together, the top layer on the bottom one, and sew a nice button on the center.

Finishing:
Sew the flower between the ring and the three stems chains, leaving a space in the ring through which you'll pass the three strands to fasten you necklace around your neck!

Hope you'll enjoy!

MyStringTheory said...

What a great project! I just made it- took about an hour all together- and I can't wait to wear it tomorrow! I had some scrap sock yarn in some great colors, so I tried it, and it made a nice smaller/delicate version. The only thing I had to do differently was add a few more chains to the stems.

Thanks for the wonderful pattern- I can't wait to try out your others!

Your items are absolutely beautiful!! Please come back & show us what you have been making :)

Mandie said...

Could you by chance post a close up of the flower? My bottom piece has 6 petals, is that correct?

creativeyarn said...

Hi Mandie, that's correct, the flower's bottom layer has 6 petals and the top one only five!!This way you can sew the top layer with each petal laying in the space between two bottom petals.
Ciao!

Anonymous said...

I am new to crochet-ing and flower making =) On the top layer, when it says "chain loop" does the SC count towards that, or am I just working in the 3 chains I made before SC'ing into the center of the flower.

BTW your patterns are all very beautiful I love this necklace and the headband too, well all of your patterns are amazing!!

Jaimie said...

Excellent post! I will be linking in this Saturday's blog post!

Stephanie said...

I just made this, and it turned out so pretty! It was very simple to make, great instructions. I did it all cream colored, and then put little plastic gems into the petals of the flower for a pop of color and bling. Super cute! Thanks for the wonderful pattern.

thankksss bye

I run a theatre group for children and I used this pattern to make part of the costumes for the fairies in our production of A Midsummer Night's Dream (in Greek). I used the flowers separately to make headresses, making lots of them in pastels, silvers and gold and then sewing them together as a helmet with stem and leaf trailers on the tops, skirts and cloaks. Fantastic! Thank you very much.

Kamyla said...

Hi, I'm really impressed with your beautiful work!!!Thanks for sharing your cute and feminines patterns. I'm just a beginner, but I fell in love with your bow!!!!So cute!!!
Great work, great art!!!
Thanks again.

Cally said...

Love it! I made one up very quickly and it looks very pretty and vintage. The only part that was hard to understand was how/where exactly to sew the flower onto the ring...so not sure if I did it per the pattern, but it worked the way I did it anyway. I LOVE THIS and will be making them in all different colors!

Cally said...

I LOVE THIS! I had a bit of trouble figuring out where/how to sew the flower on, but I just "winged" it and it works the way I did it. Just not sure if I did it the "correct" way. I love this though and will be making lots of colors!

singapore florist said...

that's a very unique necklace.

Houston SEO said...

This necklace is a beautiful, you are very talented. keep it up and we will be waiting for your next post.

Elke said...

Perhaps I´m a bit slow but could you explain the following:

Wind the yarn 5 times around the left hand's forefinger and the middle finger.
Insert the hook under the 5 strands in the direction of the palm, yarn over hook and fasten the strands with a simple crochet stitch.

I can understand winding the yard around the forefinger and inserting the hook, but where and how and why do I need to insert it in the middle finger?

suzy said...

Thanks a lot for this gorgeous necklace, this is so lovely! And so quickly done!!!

My sweet mother crocheted a flower for me a while back and this will be such a lovely way to show it off! I really apprciate that you've allowed us to use it. Thank you for sharing your talent!

zees5 said...

This is beautiful! I found your blog through a Ravelry member. My sister in law is taking me to Italy in June. Do you know a blog/website I can go to to see what Italian women are wearing for casual wear?

I can't wait to go! Your blog is deliciously beautiful!

Anonymous said...

I'm a beginner and this was my first time doing more than a granny square. It took me a couple of tries to figure out the flower (had to watch a youtube vid), but eventually I got it figured out. It looks great! Thanks for the pattern!

DAlobeidy said...

Thanks for the free pattern! It's beautiful; I look forward to making it.

super_awesome_advocate said...

Just marry me. I was afraid the pattern would be crazy hard, and it isn't at all.

Anonymous said...

Hi, Just a beginner on crocheting. I'd like to get some clarification. After I close the crochet ring with a slipped stitch, do I continue with that yarn to chain 115 or do I keep the crochet ring off to the side? Thanks so much!

This necklace is so pretty. Thankyou for your generosity in sharing the pattern.

One of the loveliest crochet flower necklaces I have come across! I saw it featured in a couple of places. I will feature and link to it on my blog in a future post so others can come visit!

joleen said...

Love this ....but I dont know how to crochet....can someone make it for me?????!!

Michelle said...

Thanks for the great pattern. I whipped this up in 30 minutes! Gorgeous.

DOLORES said...

I love this! Only problem, can you take photos of this in progress? I am a visual person and reading these directions is more than I can handle. Like, the 5x around the fingers and then do something with a crochet hook. I can crochet anything, but can't follow written directions. Help!

Anonymous said...

Hi, I love this pattern and I want to try making this. However, I don't under how to make a Crochet Ring which is the very first step for this pattern. Can someone explain to me please? Thanks in advance!

Anonymous said...

Help! I made it and it is lovely. But I must have done something wrong, because it will not stay in place around my neck. The weight of the flower causes it to gradually slip down the stems. I left an opening at the top and bottom of the stem circle. I put the stems through the top and the bottom. What did I do wrong?
Thanks for further instruction!

Silvia said...

Ciao,
bellissimi i tuoi tutorial...

Tina said...

Love this just got done making it. Great idea for those beautiful ends of skeins that you have laying around. Took about 1 1/2 once I figured it out, from start to wear ready.

florist said...

I am really very happy for providing the nice info in this website that to using the great technology in this website. I had really like it very much for visiting the nice info in this website.

Marie Nelken said...

I love the necklace and it was easy to make. The only problem is that when I wear it the flower hangs in front of my neck.. I like the look of it sitting on the shoulder better. Any suggestions to keep it on the shoulder.
