BEAUTIFUL CROCHET CHOKER - 2
BEAUTIFUL CROCHET CHOKER - 2
So the jewellery bug is back.. this time with neck pieces or chokers. This is my second blog on chokers and I’m thrilled that you’re back as we work on this new challenge together.
I found a chart that I thought would work as a neat choker and this is what I’ve done with it. Here is the inspiration photograph. This will make a neat border as well. So come along and let's work on this challenge together.
Materials used : Today I’ve used the lovely Indian Red Rose metallic cotton yarn with a 1.3 mm crochet hook.
Skill level : Intermediate
Abbreviations used : (Using U.S terminology)
fdc : Foundation double crochet dc : Double crochet
ch(s) : chain(s ch-sp : chain space
sp(s) : space(s) rep : Repeat
hk : hook yo : Yarn over
sk : Skip lp(s) : Loop(s)
st(s) : Stitch(es)
Stitches used :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg
Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row. Do take a look at this self explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start. However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.
How to do a picot stitch : A neat video link to refresh this procedure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GGlzZZl3I8
Instructions (Using U.S terminology)
Start with fsc in multiples of 6 for the length needed around the neck. Turn.
Row 1 : dc in the 1st fsc ;
(ch 2, sk next 2 fsc, dc in the next fsc) ;
rep (to) till end. Turn.
In the following row we will use a decorative picot stitch. We will use the ch-3 picot which is (ch 3 ; sl-st into the 3rd ch from hk).
Now we will use a set of five picots one after the other and then we will join with a dc to close the picot set.
For a "how to", check under "stitches used"
Row 2 : dc in the 1st dc ;
*(2 dc in the next ch-2 sp ; dc in the next dc) ;
[work 5 picots one after the other ; dc and join with the last dc of the last 4-dc set] ; dc in next dc* ;
rep *to* till end.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
And that’s done.. yet another project brilliantly executed ! J
