The Crawford Necklace was originally published in Issue 15 of the UK crochet magazine, Inside Crochet. I designed this necklace by combining simple stitches in a unique way, to create an ornate piece inspired by my collection of vintage jewelry. The use of metallic yarn echos the richness of fine jewelry that could be worn everyday or for formal occasions. The necklace could also be made in a variegated yarn, if you prefer not to change colors. This works up quickly and requires very little yarn, so you can easily make one for yourself as well as one for a gift!
The necklace is entirely crocheted, so no need to buy a clasp!
