Chiq Wedding Necklace - updated format



This flower was in the wedding section for only 4.99
How Stunning is this???? Even if you are not getting married this yarn is available in many colors make one or 10!!!

The best part this is basically a chain! WHAT??? Yes I chained RIBBON yarn and made this stunning necklace in about 30 minutes!!

I teach this class as a "lets see if I want to try crochet but I want something cute right now kind of class at Micheal's arts and crafts"

Supplies : any ribbon yarn . There are MANY brands out there , the following is a loops and thread one, but any ribbon yarn will do
Flower or pendent notion, and a crochet hook any size between D to I
Spaces are the huge rectangle gaps at the top


Instead of making a slip knot, just insert your hook into a ladder ( for strength of your work skip the first ladder space, like I did.)


Now go to the next space ( or skip 1 to 2 ) and you will pull it through the first one like you are doing a chain.

It will look odd at first and be twisted, keep going!

This is what skipping 1 space looks like


This is skipping 2 spaces.



YOu necklace will start to look like this as you get more chains.

So you want to crochet in the top part that looks like a ladder....

for this pattern you will chain skipping 1 to 2 spaces in between each chain. I chained roughly 300 or about 5 and a half feet. Then slip stitch into your first chain and cut the ribbon yarn. weave in the end and knot a few times then wrap the necklace into three or two loops as shown and place the flower pin on to secure the three ( or two ) strand necklace.

HOW EASY WAS THAT????

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
