New Free Crochet Jewelry Patterns for Kreinik!

The Kreinik company asked me to design some jewelry using their Kreinik Twist Carry Along yarn. I was very happy to see how light it was, and how you can add it effortlessly to any yarn to give it a little sparkle. This is especially exciting for people who like to crochet jewelry because you can make any yarn look richer without adding any weight to the base yarn. I crocheted the samples with Berroco Weekend yarn, which is comfortable to wear and comes in lovely colors. It becomes extra special with the addition of the Kreinik Twist! 

I intended to design one necklace, but the first necklace snowballed into a second version and a matching ring! The base of the two necklaces are the same, but they fasten differently. I couldn't decide which version I liked better, so I sent them both versions. I am thrilled to say, they decided to publish both versions! When I was crocheting the Bow Center version, it inspired a ring design that I think is simple and effective. You never know where the crochet hook will take you! You can find all 3 Looking Glass patterns for FREE on Kreinik's website. 

The version with the Bow Center is the winning version on Ravelry and Instagram. Which is your favorite?
