Simple and Easy Crocheted Friendship Necklace

Inspired by Oombawka Design, I attempted to make my own version using almost the same color but different shapes for the bead frame and the beads. This is what came out.


I wanted to send a gift to an old friend but I've been going home late from work. I didn't have much time to go out and buy something so I browsed through my Pinterest board, Crochet Patterns I Like. The goal was to look for a pattern that I could do in one sitting because the kind lady who offered to bring the gift was leaving the following day. I had to finish it before my eyelids drop for the night.

Oombawka Design's pattern for the Simply Easy Crochet Necklace was exactly what I was looking for. Simple and easy to make, indeed, it was! Instead of the usual friendship bracelet as souvenir, a friendship necklace it has become. Symbolizing a long-lasting relationship, I thought the circular bead frame I found from my stocks was just perfect! Not only that, the chain around the neck could be adjusted to make it longer or shorter. Nice color, too! I enjoyed crocheting this because the pattern was very easy to follow. 

Oh, by the way, I received these from my friend. 

Letters and pastries from Rena

Then a few days after I sent her this letter with necklace enclosed, she sent me a PM, saying that she received and liked the gift. 


Look, here are photos of her wearing the necklace. Isn't that cute? Perfect on her white blouse!

Thank you, Rena, for sending these photos to me :)  :0  :))

Thank you, Rhondda, for sharing your pattern! Looking forward to making another project with you.
