What you need
- Crochet yarn or thread
- Crochet hook
- Craft wire 24 gauge
- Jewellery closure.
Take 24 gauge craft wire and cut off the size appropriate for your neck. Create small loops at both ends of the wire.
Round-1: Take your yarn or thread and start with a slip knot. Draw the slip knot around the wire and chain 4 from hook and then chain the 5th one around the wire. Repeat *ch4, ch1 around the wire* 9 times.
Round-2: Now chain 2 (counting 2 chains as dc) into the loop near hook. Work 6 dc into the same loop and work 1 sc into the next loop. Repeat *dc6 into the same loop, sc1 into the next loop* until you reach the other end.
Round-3: For the next row chain 2 (counting 2 chains as dc) into the loop near hook. Work another dc into the same loop and chain 1 and skip the next chain stitch from the previous row. Repeat *dc2 into the same loop, ch1, skip 1 ch from the previous row* until reaching the other end.
Round-4: Chain 3 and work 1 single crochet into the 3rd chain from hook, slip stitch into the next chain and repeat *ch3, sc1, st st* 6 times. Slip stitch to the next pattern and repeat **ch3, sc1, st st* 6 times. Complete the pattern and work a sl st. Cut off extra thread.
Bend the wire to a ‘U’ shape and glue small beads at the centre of each scallop pattern.
Work 2 same sized chain rows and attach them at both ends of the wire to complete the closure of the necklace.
Try using different coloured yarns and beads for more variation!
