Finally! here's the pattern for the crochet bib necklace. all of the details for making the necklace yourself are below. however, if you're not so inclined to make your own, you can always buy a crochet bib necklace from the shop.
Materials: I used Peaches & Creme cotton solids and a size G hook, but you could pretty much use yarn/hook size to get whichever size you prefer.
Chain 33 sts
row 1: DC into third stitch from hook, DC across row.
row 2: C3, turn, DC into first st, *chain 3, DC into next st, repeat from * across the row.
row 3: C3, turn, DC into first st, then in loop created from previous row (TC, C1, TC, TC, C1, TC), * C3 skip 1 loop, SC into next loop, C3, skip 1 loop, in next loop (TC, C1, TC, TC, C1, TC). Continue from * to the end of the row. DC into remaining st. Bind off.
Repeat for next layer only chaining 29 stitches for the foundation row.
Repeat for next later only chaining 25 stitches for the foundation row.
Stitch all three together, staggering the placement to get a layered effect. To do this, place the biggest piece on bottom and attach the middle piece 1 scallop above the top edges of the bottom piece. only stitch in 2 places (at the very tops of the 'horseshoes' or U's). Next, lay your smallest piece on top of the middle piece, 1 scallop above the top. Stitch the same way as before. Finally, attach to a chain. you’re done!
Note: this pattern can be easily modified if you're using bigger or smaller yarn. To make longer or shorter pieces, just increase or decrease your initial chains in increments of 4.
