Crochet Pattern: Ladder Yarn Necklace

Free Crochet Tutorial: Learn how to make a stunning necklace with colorful ladder yarn
I normally don't get too excited about novelty yarns, but when a friend gave me a crocheted ladder yarn necklace, I knew I wanted to make one, too.

Ladder yarn (also called trellis yarn) looks exactly like the name implies. It has two thin, parallel strands that are divided by colorful, regularly spaced rungs. It's not the type of yarn that you would use for a garment, but it's great for a quick and easy crocheted necklace.

Before you begin, you have a couple choices for end caps. You can choose one with a toggle clasp or a lobster claw clasp. Both work fine. Also, if you want a thicker, fuller necklace, get larger end caps.

Gauge is not really important for this project. I like to use a crochet hook that is about as wide as the ladder yarn. In this case, I chose a US size H (5.0 mm) hook.

Make a slip knot about 6 inches from the end of your yarn, then simply make a crochet chain that's 21 inches long or your desired necklace length. Finish off, again leaving about 6 inches of yarn after the knot.

Next make as many chains as you like. I used 8 mm end caps and made 8 ladder yarn chains. The larger your end caps, the more chains you will need to make.

Bring all of the chains together and tie them in a knot right where all the chains begin. This knot should fit snugly into your end cap. If it's too big, remove some chains. If it's too small, add a few more chains.

Then, knot the chains together on the other end. Make sure the knots on each end are very tight then trim off the excess yarn ends close to the knots.

Next, you need to glue the end caps onto the yarn. Fill each end cap about halfway with G-S Hypo Cement then pinch, twist and push one knot into each end cap. It can be helpful to use something like a pencil to poke the knot into the cap.

And finally, the hard part. Let the glue dry completely for at least 24 hours. Don't try on your ladder yarn necklace or even pick it up until the glue dries.

I'd love to see your ladder yarn necklace. Post a pic on social media with #thechillydog and tag me @thechillydog.
