Free Demo Sunday! How to Crochet a Necklace! Part 1
Here is the first part of the demo on how to create this beautiful sparkly crochet necklace. Crochet necklaces were the trend in the craft community for such a long time, so we're taking it to the next level by adding some metal and sparkle to it! The first part of this demo is just the basic crochet necklace. Check back next week for part two to learn how to crochet crystals onto the wire in a couple different ways and then weave the wires into the necklace.
Materials needed (part 1):
1 ball of ladder or ribbon yarn (or at least a good 10 yards)
Size K/ 7mm crochet hook. (I prefer the Addi Bamboo because the hook is deep enough that it grabs both sides of the ladder yarn)
Additional Materials needed (part 2):
28 or 26 gauge artistic wire (I used silver but choose whatever color you'd like)
At least 100 beads to add onto the wire (I think 4mm Swarovski crystal bicones look the best)
Stay tuned! Next week we'll add the sparkle!
