I was inspired to make this necklace after seeing this photo of a Chanel crocheted necklace for spring in a recent issue of Lucky magazine.DIY Crochet Necklace Inspiration

step 1
Measure your chain around your neck and cut it to the size you want.

I cut mine to 23 inches. The links on my chain are 1 inch long. (40 links)

step 2
I mixed 3 different yarns together to get the thickness and look I wanted.

Start by making the starting loop on your crochet hook.

Single crochet in each chain.

Do NOT do a crochet chain stitch in between single crochets, you want your chain to curl in a bit.

Then you get to the end of your chain, finish by pulling your yarn through the loop on your hook and cut your yarn.DIY Crochet Necklace Row OneDIY Crochet Necklace Row One Finished

step 3
For your second row, start on the same side you started for your first row.

I counted down 8 links in my chain and started by single crocheting in the ninth stitch.

NOTE: Make sure you measure your chain and necklace, if the size of your chain is not the same a mine you will want to measure to make sure this is the right placement for you.

Double crochet in the next stitch.

Chain one.

Skip one stitch and treble crochet in the second stitch from your hook.

Continue chain one, treble crochet in every other stitch across your chain.

When you have 10 stitches left to go, double crochet in the next stitch then single crochet in the stitch after that and finish your row by pulling your yarn through the loop on your hook.

Count down 4 stitches fro the end of the chain and single crochet in the fifth stitch.

Double crochet in the next stitch.

Skip one stitch and double crochet in the next stitch.

Continue across your row by chain one, skip one stitch and double crochet in the next stitch.

Add your jump rings to the ends of your chain.

Put the closure on one side and make a small chain out of about 6 jump rings on the other side.DIY Crochet Necklace Adding ClosuresDIY Crochet Necklace FinishedDIY Crochet Necklace Close Up

The more I wear this necklace the more I like it. Its a fun change from a scarf, depending on the yarn you use it can be quite warm.

I was so excited to make this necklace that I didnt find the exact yarn I wanted, so you may be seeing a revised version of this necklace very soon. The next one will be a lot less hairy!

Another great thing about this project is how quick it is to make. If you are new to crochet its a good way to learn the three basic stitches. (And youll have something nice to show for it at the end!)

Let me know how your necklace turns out! I love hearing from you!
