Welcome to Sweet Nothings Crochet Blog where you can find Free Crochet Patterns plus my original designs and creations. :)
Over the years, I've found that there are a lot of free charts available on the net, so as I make the project off that chart, I write down my notes and share them here on my blog. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by.
The jewellery bug still reigns and I’m still
working with new ideas for neck pieces or chokers.
If you’ve been following my blogs, then you will
have paid attention to the title of this blog, you’ll see a nondescript “6”,
which will indicate that this is not the first blog of chokers. If you like what you see here, follow me via
the different social media given at the bottom of this blog, for more of the
same.. and lots of other free crochet stuff.
Welcome back as we work on this new challenge
I’ve used the lovely Indian Red Rose metallic cotton yarn with a 1.75 mm
Abbreviations used :
fdc : Foundation double crochet dc
: Double crochet
ch(s) : chain(s ch-sp
: chain space
sp(s) : space(s)
hk : hook yo
: Yarn over
sk : Skip
st(s) : Stitch(es) hdc : Half double
trc : Triple / Treble crochet
Stitches used :
fdc : Foundation Double Crochet
: This is a unique way of starting a project directly with a row of double
crochet stitches. This makes your whole
project neat and even.. in a way that you need to do once, to agree! If you are familiar with fsc, you’ll wonder
why you never used this start before !
For this project we will need
to ‘construct’ a small triangle and for that we will use an array of stitches,
small to big back to small. The different
lengths of the stitches will create the triangle automaticaly.
If you so desire, we will pop
in a picot at the centre of the triangle.
This is also a space that you can insert a bead if desired, but if you
so decide, please add your beads onto your yarn now. (Please read Note at the
Hooks on.. let’s go.
I like my foundation stitches,
and have opted to start with the foundation double crochet. I urge you to try
this stitch as it really gives a neat finish and in one row, you wil have the
dc ‘created’. It’s also a quick small
project for you to try a new stitch.
Please check the top of this blog for a “how to”.
Start with fdc in multiples of 6 for the length or round neck
Row 1 :sc in the 1st
fdc ; (ch 6, sk next 6 fdc, sc in the next fdc) ; rep (to) till end. Turn.
In the following row, we will
create our triangle, which is the long array of stitches all done in one ch-sp.
Note : As I suggested earlier, you can throw in a bead either along
with the picot, or in every alternate picot (i.e one triangle has a picot, the
next one had a bead); or you can just add beads in the place of a picot all
Either way you are going to have a stunning choker.
Do remember though that this is where you read all about this cute
choker necklace. So please add my blog
link when you share and show off your project.
Thanks in advance.
And that’s done.. yet another
project brilliantly executed ! J
