Continuing my series of necklaces, today I would like to show you how to make a curly crochet necklace. For this necklace I used a beautiful multi coloured yarn. It is a beginner crochet pattern that only uses simple stitches that don't require any advanced techniques. Play with different yarn types and colours to find what suits you better.
I used a size 3 US crochet hook and a yarn called Schachenmayr Catania, which is a 100% cotton, 50g = 125m (1.75oz = 137 yds) yarn.
For this pattern you need to know how to do a row of chains and the double crochet. You can start with any number of chains depending on the length of the curly necklace you wish to make, but keep in mind that the length of the chain will shorten about 15-20% as it curls.
Skills: chain stitch, double crochet
Materials: yarn, crochet hook, scissors
Row 1: make a chain as long as you would like your necklace to be plus 15-20%
Row 2: make 2 double crochets into the fourth chain from the hook, then 3 double crochets into the next chain and each chain till you reach the end
Finish off and weave in end.
Finger block your curly necklace to the proper shape after finishing. Sometimes the curly cue loses its spiral shape while crocheting. Don't worry about it, just twist it around a few times and it will take it's curly shape back.
