Here is my bib necklace; I hope you'll like it :

You'll need :
Main colour (MC) : Cascade Heritage  5631 (charcoal grey)
Contrasting colour (CC)  : Cascade Heritage 5637 (teal) 
Hook : 3mm

Special point : Fondation single crochet (fsc) : first 2 stitches : chain 2, pick the hook in the first stitch of the chain, yarn over , pull up loop through the first loop on hook, yarn over, pull up  loop through the 2 loops on hook ; next stitches :  (pick hook in last stitch, yo, pull up loop through first loop on hook, yo, pull loop through 2 loops on hook)

Main cord : use MC
Chain 150
Pick the hook in 15th chain from the hook and begin slip stitching for 6 inches,
1 chain, pm on the chain, sc in 36 chains, ss in the rest of the chain, 6sc in the last stitch, join to the last ss to make a little circle. Break yarn and stop live stitch, weave in ends

bib 'skeletton' : use MC
Row 1 : pick the hook in the stictch marked by a marker, 18 fsc, 1 sc in 5th stitch from marker, 1ss, turn
6 ss on the 18 fsc space just made, 24 fsc, pass 5 stitches on the main cord, 1 ss, turn
(6 ss on the 24 fsc space just made, 12 fsc, pass 5 stitches on the main cord, 1 ss, turn
6 ss on the 12 fsc space just made, 24 fsc, pass 5 stitches on the main cord, 1 ss, turn ) twice

Row 2 : 18 ss on the 24 fsc space just made, 24 fsc, pass 6 st in the 3rd space, 6ss
18 fsc, pass 6 st in the 5th space, 6ss
30 fsc, 1ss in the intersection of the 5th and 6th space ( pm on that intersection)

Row 3 : 24ss in the 1st space, 18 fsc, pass 6 fsc in the 2nd space, 6 ss
18 fsc , pass 6 fsc in the 3rd space, ss
12ss in 1st space, 18 fsc, 1 ss in 2nd space
break yarn and stop live stitch, weave in end.

Flower : use MC
go back on the intersection of the 5th and 6th space that was marked. It forms a cross. Go 6 stitches along each arm of the cross, making 3 trc in each stitch, then go back on the other side of the arm of the cross, always working 3 trc in each stitch. Do that for each arm of the cross  then join to the first trc with a ss. Do a second round with 3 dc in each trc. Join with a ss. Break yarn and stop live stitch, weave in ends.

Curlicues : use MC
Chain 32 leaving a long tail of yarn, pick the hook in 3rd stitch from the hook, and make 3 dc per stitch, gently forming the curlicue with your finger as you go along. Break yarn, leaving a long tail. With this tail and the tail of the beginning, attach the curlicue to the flower by a ss.
Chain 42 and make and attach a second curlicue.
Hide ends of tails.

Contrasting colour :
fill the interior of each hole of the skeletton with a row of sc, passing 1 stich before and 1 stich after each angle of the skeletton. You'll need to break the yarn and hide the tails as you go, to avoid beeing overwhelmed by the number of yarn ends when you're finished.

Beautiful! Thank you for posting your pattern.
I'm going to do one in cream with pink, or maybe sage contrast and curlicues, can't wait!

Oooh, what weight and type is the yarn you used?

Thank you  Grin
It's sock yarn, but I think you can do it with cotton #5.

That's lovely! The shape is really interesting, and the 'flower' part works well to balance the whole look.
