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


Directions


Before you begin, here's one special stitch.

# Chain Fringe (#chf): Chain the indicated #, sc in second ch from hook and each ch across.

Ch 101

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 9 ch, hdc in next 10 ch, dc in next 20 ch, tr in next 20 ch, dc in next 20 ch, hdc in next 10 ch, sc in next 10 ch, ch 1, turn

Row 2: Sc in first 20 sts, hdc in next 3 sts, dc in next 2 sts,

          [20chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,
          [25chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,
          [30chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,
          [35chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,
          [40chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,
          [45chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,

          [20chf, dc in next 2 sts] twice,

hdc in next 3 sts, sc in next 20 sts, ch 5, sl st in the bottom of first sc of row 1 to form a loop, finish off.

Use a needle and thread to attach the button onto the end of your necklace.

This necklace is a lovely accent to a v-neck shirt or sweater and can be worn any time of year.

  1. how do you get regular yarn to curl?

    1. When you single crochet across a chain (1 sc per chain) your work just naturally curls. The biggest "trick" is to use the right size hook. If you use a hook that is much larger than the recommended size for the yarn, the stitches will be very loose and the yarn won't curl as well.

  2. Hi Ellen
    I love this necklace. I think sometimes I overthink things
    I'm getting ready for the fringe...do you dc up the length of the 20 chains and skip 2 stiches onto the next fringe?? the comment above says sc (which makes sense) but pattern says Double Crochet
    Sorry if I sound stupid
    Thanks
    Tina

    1. Hi Tina - The fringe is made with sc in the chains (if you use dc your fringe will be very thick and will not curl), then you dc into the next 2 sts from row 1, then make your next fringe. Hope that makes sense now.
