I wanted to put together a simple mesh crochet necklace, almost like a kerchief-style scarf. here’s what i came up with. pattern is below, or if you’re not so inclined to make your own, check them out in the shop.
E/4 - 3.4mm crochet hook
DK weight yarn (I used a cotton/linen yarn)
gauge doesn’t really matter.
CH 40 sts
row 1: dc into 4rd ch from hook, *ch1, skip 1 ch, dc into next st*, repeat from * until end of the row (ending with a dc). turn.
row 2: sl st into first st, ch 2, *ch 1, skip dc on previous row, dc into next ch st. repeat from * across row. (always end row with a dc, which will be 1 st shorter than the previous row. you’re decreasing 2 st each row - 1 at the beg and 1 at the end).
repeat row 2 until 1 st remains. bind off.
to make it bigger or smaller, just do your initial chain in any odd number of stitches + 3.
