This week, the first week, I’m up first with Smalltown Dreamz. I’ve been excited for this blog hop for a while, as I’ve had a pattern in my head for some time and I wanted to work it up but didn’t know when. It’s a new idea to me, so I was really worried how it would look, but I LOVE how it turned out.
Probably my favorite part of this pattern is how you can customize it and make this totally different if you make a different applique. Like, could you imagine this with cupcakes!?! Ah! I want that now. Or owls! I’m calling this a lasso necklace. I think I’ve seen necklaces like this before and I never noticed what they were called. Eh, no matter what you call it, I hope you like it.
Oh! Don’t forget to put your e-mail in on the left to subscribe to the blog or sign up for my monthly newsletter, so you never miss a pattern release (coupon codes every issue!).

Strings – this is another slip st into a slip st design like the Leah Bracelet.
Do these as long/ short as you would like. Chain as many loops as you would like for the main color. With the accent color, slip st into the back loop only all the way across.
I did 3 strings, white is 30″, yellow is 34″ and orange is 40″. If you leave long tails, you can use those to secure the strings.

Assembly:
Attach one end of the strings to the last row of the loop. Before you secure the leaf to the other end of the string, make sure you run the string through the loop, or else you won’t be able to. Draw the loose end of the string through the corresponding colored leaf (or which ever one you want)’s chain 3 space at the end of the leaf. Weave your tail up the back of the ch to secure this portion.
Weave and trim all your ends fully. I hope these instructions made sense. Basically, just secure the strings the way that makes sense to you and looks pretty. I was thinking you could make another leaf and place it over the loop it doesn’t end up super pretty. The back of mine isn’t pretty, but it’s the back so I don’t mind all that much.
