Crochet Necklace

For this post, I'm featuring the  Crochet Necklace by Creativeyarn from Crochetme.com.

 I made one like this last year which is featured in my post entitled, "Holiday Season Crochet Marathon Part 3." Remember this?

I used black so that it would match any color of blouse or dress. I like this crochet necklace so much that I couldn't resist making another one now. This time, of similar color as the original design as featured by Creativeyarn.



For its embellishment, I used the pattern of Art Threads in making large and small petals. It's the same pattern I used for the flowers I featured in the Flower Necklace. Then, instead of using a button at the center of the flower (see original design from first photo), I crocheted an apple green bud using the pattern from Crochet Flower Fridgies to enhance the effect. I also sewed a small bead from a broken bracelet to fit into the button hole.
 
 So how do you like it? Lovely, aren't they?

I took photographs with the necklace on some pages of the crochet magazine given to me by a friend yesterday. Simple yet elegant, this necklace is very easy to make although Row 2 of the pattern may be a bit confusing, as I have noticed from the questions asked in the comment box of the blog post in Crochetme.com. I had one or two guesses on the interpretation before I was able to decipher the direction correctly.

Any plan to start crocheting your own necklace? If you make one, I would like you to post your creation to my Facebook page. Click here to like it so that you can share your work with others.

Have a craftsy holiday season!
