Crochet Pendant pattern

Crochet pendant pattern

I think I found a new favorite way to doodle with crochet while watching tv with my family, so if you like this crocheted yarn and thread pendant, let me know and I'll post more patterns later. The nice thing is they are quick to make, add a bit of color to an outfit and cost very little- they can be done with scraps of yarn and thread.

You will need:

  • small amount of worsted weight yarn 
  • small amount size 10 thread
  • size G crochet hook
  • steel size 7 crochet hook
  • needles to weave in ends
  • scissors

Stitch abbreviations:

  • Ch= chain
  • sc= single crochet
  • dc= double crochet
  • sl st= slip stitch
  • st or sts= stitch or stitches
  • repeat ** around means to repeat the instructions between the asterisks. 
With yarn and size G hook-
Make a magic ring or ch:
Rnd 1: ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc 6 times in ring or first chain, sl st in first sc to join. (6 sts)
Rnd 2: ch 1 (does not count as first st), 2 sc in each stitch, sl st in first sc to join (12 sts)
Rnd 3: ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc in same st, 2 sc in next st, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*, repeat ** around, sl st in first sc to join. (18 sts)

Break of yarn, weave in ends.

With thread and size 7 hook-

Magic ring or chain 6, join with slip stitch.
Rnd 1: ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc 12 times in ring, sl st in first sc to join. (12 sts)
Rnd 2: ch 3 (does count as first dc), dc in next st, ch 5, dc in next 2 sts, ch 5, dc in next 2 sts,ch 5, dc in next 2 sts, ch 5, dc in next 2 sts, ch 5, dc in next 2 sts, ch 3, dc in top of first ch 3 to join. (6 loops)
Rnd 3: ch 1 (does not count as first st), 3 sc in loop, skip next 2 sts, 3 sc in next loop, ch 3, 3 sc in same loop, *skip next 2 sts, 3 sc in loop, ch 3, 3 sc in same loop*, repeat ** 4 times, skip next 2 sts, 3 sc in loop, ch 1, dc in first sc of round to join. (6 ch 3 picots)

Rnd 4: Get the yarn circle, and hold it to the back of the of the thread flower. Remove hook from loop on flower, put it through one stitch on the outer rim of the yarn round, pull thread loop through the stitch. Chain 1, sc in st and the ch 3 picot on the flower together, sc in same stitch on the yarn round, 3 sc in next st on the yarn round, 3 in next st on the yarn round, sc in next stitch on the yarn round, sc in same st and the ch 3 picot on the flower together, sc in same st on the yarn round, *sc 3 times in next st on the yarn round, 3 sc in next stitch on the yarn round, sc in same st and the ch 3 picot on the flower together, sc in same st of the yarn round,*, repeat ** 2 times, 3 sc in next st of the yarn round, 3 sc in next st of the yarn round, sc in next st of the yarn round, join with sl st to first sc in round. 

Rnd 5: Ch 1 (does not count as first st), sc in same st, ch 3, skip next st, *sc in next st, ch 3, skip next st*, repeat ** around. Join final ch 3 with sl st to first sc to join. 

Chain 10, sl st in same sc to join. Break off thread, weave in ends.

Now you just need to make a cord for the necklace. I slip stitched a length for the cord shown, but you can also use monk's cord, a braided length, or even put it on a different kind of cord entirely. 

I hope you enjoyed the project!
