Still, I knew I didn't want to make just any old crochet necklace -- for me, it would need to look more fashionable to kitschy or stereotypically like crochet, if you get my drift. Once I found this pattern by the Double Stitch Twins, I knew I had found the perfect piece!
Here is what I made, using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn! in Grapette.
Naturally, for this piece to stand out more, a sparkle yarn would be preferred, but regular yarn would do just fine as well. Here is an example from the Red Heart pattern:
All in all, I loved my final project and I immediately made plans to make another one, but modified to be a continuous chain that would result in more layers and perhaps be more like a scarf. I've finished it already, but I will post an update blog about that later. Stay tuned!
