I have been in the best mood the last couple of weeks. I’m working on tons of patterns, having fun doing it, and just throwing together some fun accessories to wear to work. I’m also enjoying school. 😀 I have this assignment where I have to watch Pushing Daisies, the wonderful gone too soon show from like 6 years ago, to analyze it for it’s use of math and then write a paper on that. Sounds fun, right? Tedious, sure, but still enjoyable because Lee Pace. *growl* Whoa, got off topic. Ha.
Anyway, want a pattern for a fun snowflake themed necklace that you could probably wear until February or later depending upon where you live?
You’re going to need a US 2.00 mm crochet hook and 2 colors of size 10 crochet thread, I used Aunt Lydia’s in light blue and white, I’d say less than a full oz.
For the snowflake (make 2):
With first color: Row 1: Create a magic circle, sc 6 times into the circle, slip st into the first st to secure – 6 scs
Row 2: Ch 3(counts as dc), ch 2, *dc into next st, ch 2,* repeat from * to * 4 more times, slip st into the top of the ch 3 to secure – 6 dcs
Row 3: Ch 1, sc into same st as join, [hdc, dc, ch 2, dc, hdc] into ch 2 space, *sc into next st, [hdc, dc, ch 2, dc, hdc] into next ch 2 space,* repeat from * to * 4 more times, slip st into the first sc to secure – 12 dcs, 12 hdcs, 6 scs
Color 2: Row 4: Pull up a loop in a ch 2 space from row 3, sc into the space, ch 6, *skip to next ch 2 space, sc, ch 6,* repeat from * to * 4 more times, slip st into first sc to secure – 6 scs
Row 5: Ch 1, sc into same st as join, [sc 4 times, ch 4, sc 4 times] into ch 6 space, *sc into top of sc, [sc 4 times, ch 4, sc 4 times] into ch 6 space,* repeat from * to * 4 more times, slip st into first sc to secure – 54 scs
Row 6: Ch 1, sc into same st as join, sc into next 4 sts, ch 5, *sc into next 9 scs, ch 5,* repeat from * to * 4 more times, sc into last 4 scs, slip st into first sc to secure – 54 scs
To stitch them together, during the 6th row of the second one, slip st into one of the ch 5 spaces of the 6th row of the other snowflake, during one of the ch 5s.
For the straps, ch 80, sc 5 times into a ch 5 space 2 away from the ch 5 space where you joined the snowflakes, ch 75 and sc into the last 5 chains of the first ch 80. Repeat this on the other snowflake.
You could definitely add more snowflakes if you want or you could turn these into cute earrings. The snowflakes measure 4.5″ across and 2.25″ in height for the individual snowflakes. The straps, if you do the 80, measure 8.75″ in length. You could add jump rings and necklace findings if you would like or you could just tie the straps.
I hope you like and make your own necklace for the winter season. I’ll be updating again a couple of days with another Willow pattern, the boot cuffs, which I’ve already added to my website. I’m also working on a new hat and playing around with crochet cables, which I’ve had issues doing in the past.
Have a good weekend! I’m looking forward to a great week next week, lots of fun coming up. 😀 Happy holidays.
