|May 2013 Inspiration Point|
I (Major Moma) did something different for this month's Inspiration Point. I crocheted a necklace! I have just started to learn how to crochet. M taught me when she was visiting last fall. I have been meaning to share some of my projects here on the blog. But, I have just not gotten around to it. Maybe I will post about them when I have nothing else to show, just to fill the space.
The pattern is 5-petaled flower necklace designed by Lia Govers. I found it on Ravelry. It is a sweet little pattern made with a heavy thread weight yarn. It was pretty easy, even for a noob like me. I had to learn a couple new skills to complete it, like the triple crochet.(yes, I am that new)
I used a graduated colored yarn that goes from pink to white to pink again. At the end, I took my chain and slip stitched it to the chain to make a loop. So, you can just thread the flower into the loop for the closure. It seems to work fairly well. I made it long enough to be wrapped around twice ... but only my daughter has worn it so far. I am sure I will wear it later.
So, do you all crochet? What do you like to make?
