Frida's Flowers Necklace Pattern


Here's my new Frida inspired necklace. The tutorial guides you in making the flowers and the leaves, but I also show you how to make the ribbons to hang the flower arrangement onto, if you feel like it – so this requires some light sewing.

What you need:
* sport yarn (leftover yarn is great for this project) and a steel 1.9 mm hook. Please consult hook recommendation on your yarn label if you decide on using thicker / thinner yarn.
*(optional) metal clams, metal chain, jump rings, lobster clasp, ribbon.
Used terms in American terminology: chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), skip (sk), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), treble (tr).

Finished measurements: maker’s choice. Depending on the amount of flowers you decide to add and the size of flowers you make.

What we are going to make
- three types of flowers
- two types of leaves (+ a variation of one of them).
- a sewn ribbon (optional)

The pattern on etsy and ravelry.




There is also a small collection of scarves coming up inspired by her, so stay tuned.

What a lovely and creative way to use leftover yarn - beautiful!

Maya Kuzman said...

Thank you Amalia. I wanted to make fluffier and fuller flowers, but left that for the spring headband I am planning to make.

Maya Kuzman said...

Yes, it is. Instead of tossing those tiny skeins around :)
Thank you for stopping by!

You've make me turn to brilliant colours ever since you wrote about Frida. Just something "in between", but you've made me miss vibrant colours and I had to work with them st least for a little while...
Your Frida necklace is very beautiful. Colours and flowers are all we need right now (it started snowing again...)!
Have a lovely Sunday,
Marjan

Maya Kuzman said...

Thank you Julia. Likewise:)

Maya Kuzman said...

Thank you Myrica! I have an incredibly rich inspiration as a fuel :)

Maya Kuzman said...

So glad to hear that Marjan. I also love pastels and use them a lot in my creations, but when I see a bold and vibrant color, it moves something inside me do greatly and I hold onto that impulse as a guide in my work. I simply cannot imagine my life without color. As for the snow, this year like no one before I wished for snow and enjoyed while it lasted. Enjoy your snow for the spring will be here in no time. Wishing you a lovely Sunday!
