Yesterday I demonstrated the basic chain stitch...
And we're going to use that today to make this necklace:
Yarn [I recommend Simply Soft]
Crochet Needle [I recommend size J]
Start by chaining 3 chains of yarn, each 20 feet long [yes, I know that's long... but if you're new to crocheting this is a great way to master chaining!]
Tie the chains together on one end, and braid the chains together:
Wrap the braided yarn into loops... create a layered effect by varying the size of the loops:
Wrap the start/end of the loops with yarn like so and tie it off:
And that's it... a fun, chunky layer necklace:
