Crochet Chain Necklace and Bracelet

I’ve been having fun making Crochet Chain Necklaces. Last fall I saw a pattern at The Beading Gem’s Journal and I immediately made a supplies list. Finally, last week I had time to make try it out.

Aqua Ice crochet chain necklace and bracelet

The first thing I learned was that the chain I had purchased was too small for the size yarn and hook recommended. So I had to make some changes. The necklace in the above picture is my third (and finally successful) attempt. I used Aunt Lydia’s Aqua Ice Bamboo crochet thread (which is oh, so soft on the skin!) and a size 2 (2.25mm) crochet hook. The original chain purchased was long enough to make a matching bracelet. I wore these the other night and they were very comfortable.

This second necklace and bracelet was made the same as above, using a bronze chain and Aunt Lydia’s Green Tea Ice Bamboo crochet thread.

This past weekend I purchased some larger chain, so this morning I whipped this one off in about half an hour.

Spring Sparkle crochet chain necklace

This Crochet Chain Necklace was made with Caron Simply Soft Party yarn, Spring Sparkle, and a size F/5 (3.75 mm) crochet hook. I added extensions to each of my necklaces at the clasp because they seem to hang better that way. Plus I like the adjustability in length.

I have another chain and some Caron Simply Soft Party yarn in Royal Sparkle (blue) – you know what I’ll be making tonight!
