Spring weather is fickle. (I originally wrote this post in March 2013.) I am ready to pull out the t-shirts, but there is still a chill in the air. I'm bored with scarves, so I made this twisted, crocheted choker. It adds a warm dash of color.
You will need:
Lion Brand® Yarn's BonBons in Celebrate - use the light and dark blues
Buttons Galore & More's Granny's Button Box in Teal
Westcott Craft Titanium Bonded 3" Scissors
D crochet hook
Row 1: With light blue, chain 120. Turn work, chain 1, skip the first stitch, work the rest in single crochet.
Row 2: Attach dark blue, *chain 1, skip the first stitch. Single crochet the first 10 stitches. Chain 100.
Single crochet the last 10 stitches of the light blue base. Turn work, chain 1, skip the first stitch. Single
crochet 10 stitches, chain 100 and then work the last 10 stitches.*
Row 3: Switch back to light blue, repeat Row 2 from * to *.
Row 4: Switch to dark blue, repeat Row 2 from * to *.
Row 5: Switch to light blue, repeat Row 2 from * to *.
Row 6: Switch to dark blue, repeat Row 2 from * to *. After the final 10 stitches are worked, chain 10 and
attach to Row 3 with a slip stitch. Chain 1 and work 18 single crochets in the loop. Fasten off.
Sew in all ends. Sew on the button.
Hold both ends of the necklace and twist it a few times. Fasten it around your neck. You can vary the look
based on whether you wear the button in the back, the front or to the side.
The above-listed companies provided product for me to use in this pattern.
