Well, here’s the much anticipated (I’m so sure) matching necklace to the Sol Earrings pattern that I posted last week.
Again, this is only the motif. The actual necklace is something that is completely up to you. I love all things ethnic and native looking, so I am partial to beading myself. I simply used beading wire and seed beads to make my necklace. Of course you have to buy all the findings to go along with it as well. It would be totally fine to just slip it on some waxed cotton or leather cord or a chain.
Just like with last week’s earrings, we’re going to be working with crochet thread and embroidery floss at the same time to give it that marled look.
- size 3 cotton crochet thread
- one skein of embroidery floss
- Size (E) crochet hook
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Ch 6 and sl st in the first ch to form a ring
Rnd 1: ch 1, 20 sc in ring, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 2: ch 6 (counts as dc, ch 3), skip next sc, *dc in next dc, ch 3, skip next sc; rep from * around, sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch to join.
Rnd 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), *4 dc in next ch-3 loop**, dc in next dc; rep from * around, ending last rep at **, sl st in 3rd ch of beg ch to join.
Rnd 4: Ch 1, *sc in dc, ch 4, skip next dc; rep from * around, sl st in forst sc to join. Fasten off.
As stated in last week’s earrings pattern, you can starch this piece to give it more stability and shape, but it’s not absolutely necessary.
