It all started because I needed to by student tickets for my daughter. But on n the way to the tickets, you have to pass through the magazine isle …
I saw one, The Interweave Crochet magazine, which had such great projects! Since I was early, I decided to browse through and saw the projects. I know, I wasn’t supposed to get another crochet magazine … what can I say? I’m a crochet-holic!
I really loved the motif stripes on the Cleopatra dress, but I’m not planning to crochet a dress anytime soon, so it was just eye candy (delicious). But I did want to try those motif stripes.
It’s just a square, done in two colors. After a bit of planning, I blocked it to a diamond shape. It took me a couple tries, but I got it done.
With few beads, headpins and a split ring, I added a tassel to it. When that was done, it looked like a pendant, so I decided to go the whole way and make it a necklace. Here it is!
