I’ve been so busy designing things lately its crazy to think that I’ve made. I finished my jumper, which was supposed to be a cardigan at its outset, it was frogged many many times!!!! I’ll hopefully write about that soon, I’m sat typing this post wearing it as the British Weather has been true to every stereotype and its been freezing in June!
I went to the coast for a couple of days in half term with the blue one and the pink one to see their cousins and Nanny and Grandad.
After a trip to the beach, and the ‘Must Have’ Bluebird Cafe Ice cream, we went to the local shops,
Where I may have bought a little bit more yarn! Yes, I know, “no more yarn”, but this stuff was lovely. A T-shirt yarn from Tiger (the ‘stuff’ version of Ikea). You go in not wanting to buy anything in particular and come out at least £20 lighter! In this case I was very restrained, only 4 balls on this lovely yarn, along with lots of other things!
So I set to work very quickly……. and decided I want to make myself a necklace. I’d seen a few on Pinterst, but I wanted something super chunky and real statement…. The Crescent Moon Necklace was born.
You’ll need a 10mm hook if using a thinner t-shirt yarn, like above.
It takes a minimal amount of yarn, you’ll make at least 2 necklaces from 2 balls of the above, maybe even 3!
So do you want to see it?
I was so eager to wear it I used what fastenings I could find! But I love it!!!!! So bright and cheery, and it fits perfectly around your neck!
It took a few attempts to perfect…….
It explains all the stitches (in US terms), and how to make the necklace.
A local friend has kindly tested the pattern for me to make sure it all made sense and was easy to follow. It looks fab in Hoooked T-shirt yarn too!
So I may have splurged on a bit more T-shirt Yarn because of this Necklace, but it’s all in a good cause, as I’m teaching a workshop making them in a couple of weeks at The Makers’ Cabin, and I can’t wait to see what colours we come up with!
