Half Doily Necklaces


Happy Saturday guys!
I thought it would be nice to spice up the weekend with a lovely pattern for necklaces that will cheer up your summer.
So I composed this tutorial to help you make them :)
To make these you will need sport yarn (4 colors), adequate hook (read the label), jump rings, metal chain, and a lobster clip.
Choose your assorted colors for the project and with (preferably) white
Chain 3, join to make ring and sc 4 in ring.

(Half) Round 1: Insert new color and sc 4. Ch4 and turn work.

 Round 2: Make a 4dc puff st in the 1st st.  


Ch 2 and make the 4-dc puff in the next st. Repeat this twice. Ch1 and make 1 dc in the last st to end the round.
(In that last st. you will make both the puff and the finishing dc. Work tails as you progress, so you'd have less work later. )

Round 3: Turn work with face up and insert new color.Ch4 and make a 4dc puff in the 1st st.

Ch3 and make the puff in the next st. 

Ch 3 and in the 3rd ch space make a puff, ch3, make another puff.
Ch 3, make a puff in next sp, repeat once more and to end ch1 and make 1 dc in the last space.

Round 4: Insert new color and repeat round 3.

Round 5: Ch3 and turn work. Sc in the 1st space. Ch 4 and sc in next sp. Repeat this to one before last where you ch 3 and sc to end the round.

Round 6: (optional) ch 3and sc in 1st chain.

Next, make a 3-ch picot...

.. ch 2 and sc in the next ch. Repeat this to nearly the end where you will ch 3 and sc to end it.

You can make round 6 or skip it - it looks nice both with the picots and without them.

Add jump rings at the sides, attach the metal chain with the lobster clip and you are ready to go.

Have fun!

Hi Maya, these are really pretty crocheted necklaces and so colorful. Thanks for this tutorial to make them. I will have to buy some of the chains at the crafts store to make one.

I should have given them that name - far more exotic than their current name :)

Your necklaces are so pretty! I wish I were more crafty, but my projects end up looking more like a kindergartener threw something together.

Pretty! As a crafty girl these would be perfect for me. I would need one in every colour in my wardrobe though!
