I became really interested in crochet jewelry lately and I mostly like necklaces, since earrings somehow eventually feel very heavy after a while plus my ear gets irritated. So I searched up some patterns, and found two I really liked. One used metal chains and the other one was just yarn. I didn’t have any chains at the time so I made the second one first.
I didn’t want that and felt that it was a waste of yarn, so I wanted to make the pretty part and then add some metal chains to it to 1. make it so I didn’t have to tie the chains to get it at the level I want, and 2. to make it look like a real necklace, at least to me. I know that there are some crochet necklaces that only use yarn and are long, and I think that they are really pretty, but for this pattern, I felt it needed some metal chains. The chains measured about 9 1/2 inches for each side. I had a hard time cutting the chains I must say.
What kind of jewelry do you like? Have you made a necklace before? Tell me all about it, I’d love to know!
