Valentine's Necklace - free tutorial

 
 
 
 
 
Happy Monday and Welcome to the second project dedicated to Valentine's Day.
 
Today I'll show you how to make this cute necklace.
 
Gather your supplies:
 
 
 
* Decorative twisted cord
* Long strip of lace (with big holes on the upper edge)
* Crochet (or other) flower
* Beads (optional and maker's preference)
 
 
 
First insert the cord through the holes and gather the lace in the middle.
 
Use any crochet (cotton / other) flower you like.
 
The pattern for this flower goes like this:
 
Ch 5 and join to make a ring.
Rnd.1: In the ring, ch 6 (3 as the 1st dc + 3 for the chain), "dc1, ch3". Repeat "this" 4 times more. Sl st with beginning chain to end round.
Rnd.2: In the first chain space, make 1sc, 1hdc, 1 dc, 1hdc, 1sc. Repeat this pattern for all chain spaces.
Rnd.3: ch4, make a BCsc (between petals) all around.
Rnd.4: In the first chain space, make 1sc, 1hdc, 3 dc, 1hdc, 1sc. Repeat this pattern for all chain spaces. End with a sl st into the 1st petal of the round.

 
Cut pieces of lace and pick the edges to get a shabby look. Put them in the center and sew beads over them.
 
 
 
Sew flower on the side and your necklace is done!
 

 
 
The first project of the mini series was the Valentine lariat.
