Crochet Bunting Necklace - free pattern

Hey guys!
I thought I would surprise you with a cute pattern for a crocheted bunting necklace! Eva wore it yesterday for the first time and it looked so good on her, I will certainly be making it in other color combos :)
The easy-peasy pattern goes like this:
{Mind that the size of yarn determines the size of the actual piece - I made it with sport yarn and 1.9mm hook, so it looks fragile and delicate and not bulky and sturdy}
Chain 7. Starting from 2nd ch from hk, sc 4 and then sc2tog (the last 2 st).Turn work. Sc3 across and sc2tog. Repeat the pattern decreasing at the end until there is only one stitch on the hook. The first triangle is made.

Next, chain 8. Seven for the next bunting piece and 1 as a border between. Repeat the triangle pattern as above. Make 4 such triangles.
Work the pattern in other colors (two three or more).

When all the desired buntings are made, join all three with jump rings at the sides. Do not join the middle ones. Just attach the jump rings and add beads or coins as we did.

Apart from coins, we also added beaded pins to make it more playful.

The necklace looks and feels very bohemian. It would greatly suit a teenager. I am sure Eva must have received lots of compliments when she wore it

Beautiful necklace! Your jewellery is always so easy to make yet the result looks stunning. :-)
Thanks for sharing!

She's quite picky when it comes to jewelry, but she liked wearing this :)
This doesn't happen very often.

I must have an easy pattern to work on in between projects Alhana.A pattern that I could work in with my brain shut down. I am currently working on designing a blanket pattern that is draining me, so as a digression I always have these no-brainers at hand. :)
Thank you!

You picked the right colours but I can imagine that you'd like to try it with different colours, can't wait to see that :-)
Must try something like that too, your pictures and ideas make me want to create jewellery as well ( though I've never tried that before! ).
Have a great weekend, Sigrid
