When I created my Candy Corn Bag I had a few people ask for the pattern for the necklace I also linked to. I wasn’t sure if I would get around to the pattern before Halloween, so I didn’t promise anything. Fortunately, I was able to find the time to write it up! The best part of this pattern is that you can change the colors and totally make an adorable chevron pattern for any occasion. You can make this with any size hook you have available, I have a bunch of Boye hooks so I just pick which one I want and go with it. You could even do this in yarn and a G (4.00 mm) crochet hook if you’re so inclined.
- US 1.80 mm crochet hook
- Size 10 crochet thread
- I used Aunt Lydia’s
- Needle to sew in the ends
- Fabric Stiffener (optional)
- I use the Stiffy brand variety
Gauge is not critical for this project.
Terms/ stitches used:
- RS: right side (side facing out)
- St: stitch
- Ch: chain
- Sc: single crochet
- The ch 1 st the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
- This pattern is worked back and forth with a turn at the beginning.
- The main chevron is worked, the you do a long chain and then sc around the edge of the chevron and then another equally long chain. The long chains are the straps.

Row 1 (RS): Ch 27, sc into the second ch from the hook and into the next 4 sts, sc twice into the next st, sc into the next 7 sts, skip the next 2 chs, sc into the next 7 sts, sc twice into the next st, sc into the last 4 sts – 26 scs

Feel free to add more chs.
For a lot of my jewelry, I like to use fabric stiffener to help it keep it’s shape. I use the Stiffy brand but if you have another variety or like to DIY yours that’s great too. Although you can definitely rock one of these necklaces without it, I’ve found that the chevron curls slightly if it’s not stiff. All you do it apply the stiffener (diluted with water) and let it dry flat or in the shape you want. Bam! That’s all. It’s like wet blocking.
Well, I hope you like this pattern and make a lot of fun chevron necklaces!
In other news, I have a brand new design in this month’s issue of Happily Hooked Magazine. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should check it out!
I’ve also got a new pattern, the Kimberly Hat, out! It’s on sale for $1.99 and a really interesting hat, or at least I think so (I’m bias though).
