DIY: Chunky Crochet Necklace

Today I’m sharing my latest make for Minerva Crafts Blogger Network : a chunky crochet necklace using zpagetti yarn.  January has been so so very cold – and I’ve been exhausted pretty much every day (I’m sure it wasn’t as bad last year??).  I’ve been wearing layer upon layer and spending as much time wrapped up in a blanket as is humanely possible (luckily series like Making A Murderer have given me a great reason to stay in!).

I used zpagetti yarn for this make – it’s a favourite material of mine because the thickness means projects move so so quickly.  I also think it adds a really contemporary feel to more traditional techniques (I’m also currently making a basket in the stuff).  This tutorial is really quick and very easy – perfect if you’re new to crochet or looking to pick up a new skill this january.  You can also mix and match the colours as much as you want and it’s a great little project for using scraps.

You Will need:

  • 12mm crochet hook
  • Zpagetti yarn in two contrasting colours
  • Scissors

Steps:

  • Create a slip knot in the end of your base yarn with a 25cm tail
  • Chain stitch 30 and then cut another tail of 25cm. Pull this tail through your final stitch to secure.

  • Change to your second colour – begin with a slip knot and then double crochet into your base chain the whole way along.  This gives you a beautifully chunky necklace but you could go bigger simply by adding another row.

I love pairing my necklace with big comfy jumpers and warm long sleeve dresses!
