There is something cosy cute about a crocheted necklace.
There is something cosy cute about a crocheted necklace. It’s a little bit nanna and a little bit now. Make this for yourself or someone you are very fond of! You could even make a matching brooch or some loved-up earrings of the dangly persuasion. Or keep adding hearts and make the most romantic scarf you have ever seen!

  • Step 1

    1. Make six heart motifs in different colours
    like this
    > Make a slip knot, leaving a long tail of yarn (about
    30 cm [12 inches]). Put your slip knot onto your
    crochet hook and pull it fi rmly (but not tightly).
    > Chain 5 stitches. Slip stitch into the very fi rst
    stitch to form a ring. We are going to crochet into
    this ring in a minute!
    > Chain 3.
    > Now treble [double crochet] 10 times into the ring.
    > We’ve almost made a round, but not quite. We
    aren’t going to close this almost-round, either.
    The missing wedge at the top helps to form the
    heart shape.
    > Fasten off to fi nish the heart and then snip your
    loose yarn, leaving a 30 cm [12 inch] tail. Pull the
    heart into shape, giving the bottom a tug to make
    it pointier!
    Make your other fi ve hearts in the same way,
    leaving those all-important long tails. The tails will
    help us to stitch the hearts into formation once we
    are ready.

  • Step 2

    2. Sew your hearts together
    Arrange your hearts in formation, so that they
    resemble our photo. Take your fi rst heart in your
    hand (!). Thread the uppermost yarn tail of this
    heart through your yarn needle. Carefully stitch
    each heart to the next with 3 or 4 well-hidden
    stitches, then weave the needle through the stitches
    of your heart to conceal some of the excess tail. Snip
    the tail off very close to your work. Repeat with the
    other hearts and tails, stitching them together and
    weaving in any loose ends.

  • Step 3

    3. Attach your jump rings and chain
    Use the pliers to open up the jump rings and
    carefully hook them evenly onto each side of the
    crocheted piece. Thread the chain onto each jump
    ring. Now use the pliers to close them up again.
    Ta-dah! You made a necklace!

  • Step 4

    Add one more treble [double crochet] to each motif
    to form a round and then slip stitch to close, then
    you can make this necklace from cute circles,
    instead of hearts! Make lots more hearts and stitch
    them together to form a scarf or a bracelet!
