Project 7 - Handmade Crochet Necklace from coatscrafts.com


In this post I am passing on details of a craft project which combines a jewellery item with the current fad for festive season knitwear and crochet accessories. 

French designer, Natalie Spiteri has created necklace designs using Anchor Freccia 3 ply crochet thread.

Designs vary a little, to make the necklace shown on the left here access the crochet chart available as a free download at www.coatscrafts.com 

link follows next...

This an easy project for those who possess crochet making skills. Basically all you will need is:  Anchor Freccia (3 ply crochet thread), 1 ball of col 50g; 1 Milward crochet hook, 
size 1.25 mm (US 8); one container of Swarovski beads, 4 mm 
in diameter; one beading needle; a chain with at least 60 
metal links, 5 x 7 cm (2 x 2 3/4 inches) in size.

Thread the required number of Swarovski beads onto the 
yarn. Crochet onto the chain, following the crochet chart.

Block the crocheted piece, dampen, and let dry.

Size when complete measures Length 45 cm (17¾ inches), width 8 cm (3 inches)

Look on the counter of your local stockists for the Colour World display. This was a promotion running over the summer but if it is still going you should be provided, foc, with easy to follow instructions (two designs) as shown at the top of this post. Plus a metal chain to crochet your design onto. You will need to purchase a 50g Freccia crochet ball in the first instance. The threads are a lovely quality and the colours are very vibrant. Stunning for Christmas Card threading activities too.
