Oops. So some things have come up (like field work being super stressful this summer- why did I start my master’s program the year before a drought?!? Ah…hindsight…). Anyway, now that summer’s over, I want you to know that I haven’t given up on my 23 projects in 3 months goal. I have still been doing my crafty-things however I have neglected to post ANY OF THEM. So in an effort to procrastinate getting ready to back to school on Wednesday here I go!
Project 3 (bubble necklace) was started a long time ago. Then, I moved and it went in a zip lock bag never to be seen again until today. At least all the pieces went in a zip lock, which is more than I can say for the majority of my projects.
Anyway, you start out with this!
- I used green (986), cream(822), and black(310) embroidery thread (school colors) which I kept intact instead of pulling apart into individual threads.
- plastic “bone rings” of different sizes (I ripped off the tag and apparently threw it away so I’m not sure on the size)
- I’m pretty sure I used a size 4/2.00mm crochet hook, as this is the only one that was missing from my kit… (>.< NO WORRIES! IT HAS BEEN FOUND!)
- Some sort of ribbon, rope, string, wire, or chain for the necklace. I didn’t know right away what I would end up liking so there’s a variety in the pic.
Single crochet around each of the rings and tie off. To get something like this.
Tuck your ends in (I was having some issues with this as I crochet super tight for no apparent reason)
Then arrange and sew together. I just crochet them together with slip knots (again, make your life easier by making your single crochet looser than mine!).
Attach your choice of necklace. I used chain and jump rings. I need to go get a clasp but right now it’s large enough to fit over my head so I might just leave it like that.
All I have to do now is tuck in my ends!
What do you think?
If you guys would like a more in depth tutorial just ask! I’d be happy to show you how to single crochet or slip knot the rings together.
