Chain necklace? Are you trying to be crazy? Well not really, you see this is not the typical chains that one uses to chain a bike to the pole or the chain that is used to anchor things, this is crochet chains.
This necklace is very simple to do and any beginner can give it a try. All you need to know is how to chain, slip stitch and single crochet. Don’t worry you only have to do a little single crochet not that much and I will help you along. I have YouTube tutorials for you if you are a left-handed beginner: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4P9NmCnhfHGai1iq9L3fwQ
Hook and wool of choice. No gauge is used in this pattern but the larger the wool skein or more grams the thicker and longer your necklace will be.
Start by chaining 8, in second chain from the hook, single crochet across. (7sts).
Chain 1, single crochet across the stitches to the end. Repeat this row 6 more times. You should have 8 rows done in total. Finish off leaving a 30cm end.
Now for the necklace part and it happens to be the easiest part.
Chain until you have no wool left. Just keep chaining.
When you have run out of wool, finish off. Take the first chain and tie it to the last chain made. You should have a HUGE huge loop. Now loop the huge loop as many times as you can around your elbow and over your palm. You can do the loops looser than that or slightly tighter. These multiple loops will for the necklace ‘chains’. When you are unable to loop anymore then just secure it, we will be covering that area so it doesn’t matter how you do that. Take the little single crochet square you made at the beginning, and fold it over your join made on the chains, sew up the side seam and trim any ends you might have.
Viola you made your chain necklace!

I am a person who never seems to complete a project. I like to start something and then while I am busy with that project I see another one that looks interesting. So I leave the first project and start on the new one. Here is all the projects I have made and still making over the days…just to show a few.
This scarf-necklace is very easy to make and so quick.
Pattern: 1 ball of 80g wool in colour of choice.
Chain 10, sc in chain across, turn, and sc across. Keep sc until the piece measures 4cm from top to bottom. Finish off.
With the remaining wool, chain as many chains as you can get, join to the beginning of the starting chain made. Now all you have to do is loop the long chain piece until it is all looped up. It doesn’t have to be equally wound up.
Take the little crocheted piece made at the beginning, the little swatch-like piece, and sew it over the looped chains to hold them all in place and to hide the join of the chains.
Viola! Completed scarf-necklace.
I was asked to make the tiniest baby booties ever. They were made for a set of newborn twins…Pretty cute I think.
Here is some Barbie outfits that I made. My sisters loved playing with Barbie when they were younger and this gave me the idea to make Barbie clothing. Well it was not an easy task, like I thought it was going to be. The small sizes made it hard to work with, especially when making the shaping sections of the items.
