layers of ruffles: crochet bib necklace



this past sunday was a rainy sleepy day, so i spent most of it indoors, working on a few projects. the rain cleared up for a bit, and we had a little mini-shoot wearing the new layered crochet necklace.



this necklace is a great way to use up remaining stashes of yarn. i used cotton peaches and creme solid from the big cone, just because i have so much of it. and a size G crochet hook.



to make the necklace, i crocheted 3 separate half-circle pieces, using a mixture of stitches and patterns to get the rounded, scalloped ruffly shape. then i sewed the pieces together, and attached a vintage chain. if anyone's interested, i'll write up the pattern.

That looks really good. I can imagine it on a huge, over the top scale with loads of layers...hmm. That would be awesome! I may have to have a go.

Hi thanks so much for visiting me yesterday. It's great to meet you and find your very beautiful, creative spae here--I really like the mix of fashion, crafting and fun. LOVE this necklace! I'm a long-time knitter, but just getting into crochet. And I love jewelry making. So I'd love to try a pattern for something like this.
