Flower Necklace - Free Pattern

Flower Necklace

 If you've never tried working with thread, this would be a great project to start with. It's not the tiniest thread, so don't be intimidated by it. I never worked with thread until I wrote my first book, and I love it! (especially # 3 thread) It's really not any smaller than a fingering wt, baby wt, or some sport wt. yarns

  1. cute cute cute, I see these flowers as add ons to anything from shoes / summers sandle) belts, etc
    and some of mom's lands end twin sets too,,
    see how my mind thinks?? am a rebel knitter and crochter now,,,,can NEVER do pattern as done by designer!

  2. Very adorable. I've not tried working with crochet thread yet so I'll definitely have to bookmark this one!

  3. I was always afraid to try working with thread all those years (35) that I crocheted, but when I started, I really enjoyed it! The Baby Doll Top in Crochet That Fits is the same # 3 thread, and it worked up pretty fast with a size F hook. I even crocheted around a bangle bracelet in Positively with size 10 thread and it wasn't that bad. You just need good light.
