Crochet Pattern: Sock Yarn Swirl Necklace

Sock Yarn Crochet Pattern: Create a quirky, swirly necklace that's a unique anytime accessory for v-neck shirts and sweaters.I recently got two beautifully hand dyed, 100 g skeins of sock yarn from Kookaburra Yarns. I don't use this weight of yarn in projects very often, but the colors were so incredible that I just couldn't resist.

With the first skein I made a knit infinity necklace as well as a pair of socks. So, I thought I would try my hand at a crocheted necklace with the second skein.

This is a rather unusual pattern for sock yarn, but I think you'll enjoy the fun and quirky style. You may even be able to use up some of the bits of yarn from your stash for this project because you only need about 65 yds (14 g) of sockweight yarn.

The finished necklace is approximately 17 inches.

Materials



  • approximately 65 yds (14 g) of lightweight sock yarn (I used a 75% merino/25% nylon blend)
  • 3/8 inch button
  • US 1 (2.35 mm) crochet hook
  • needle and thread
