This took.......10 minutes? Anyway, I've had this idea in my head for a while now and when I saw the contest, I decided to go on and make it. I used Red Heart Super Saver for the actual necklace, Vanna's Choice (plum) for the purple circle in the pendant, and 26 gauge wire for the wire part.
Thanks, Mom, for modeling..
I'm pretty bad at writing patterns....so good luck. Please let me know of any mistakes.
It should be around 15 inches long.
Hooks used: H(5.00mm), K(6.50mm)
sc- single crochet
sk-skip- = new row
Using H(5.00mm) hook...
-Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 16 sts
*ch 5, sk 3, sc in next st*, repeat from * once, ch 7, sk 5, sc in next st, repeat from * to * twice. Fasten off.
-Join yarn in 3rd ch of a 5ch loop, ch 7, sc in 3rd ch of next 5ch loop, ch 9, sc in 4th ch of 7ch loop, ch 9, sc in 3rd ch of 5ch loop, ch 7, sc in 3rd ch of 5ch loop. Fasten off.
-Join yarn in the 4th ch of a 7ch loop, ch 9, sc in 5th ch of 9ch loop, ch 11, 1 sc in 5th ch of 9ch loop, ch 9, sc in 4th ch of the last 7ch loop. Fasten off.
Using 26 gauge wire and K(6.50mm) hook....
-ch 2, 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook
-2 sc in each st
Fasten off and press wire so it lays flat and push together to make it more of a circle if it came out weird like mine. You don't want a big hole in the middle, so push it together if you have that.
For the purple part, I used a(an?) H(5.00mm) hook and repeated what I did for the wire part and sewed it together.
Add a button hole at one end of the necklace by pulling a piece of yarn through and tying the end so there's a tiny gap for a button. Sew the button to the other end of the necklace.
