Necklaces for Mother's Day


 


After looking over some of my most recently published designs, I realized several of them would make great Mother's Day gifts.  Here are two necklaces that work up quickly and are one-size-fits-all!

This necklace pattern can be found in the Summer 2016 issue of Crochet! magazine - it is on newsstands now and can be purchased as an instant digital download here.
 
 
It is crocheted with Nazli Gelin's Garden 3 Egyptian Cotton crochet thread (Click here to see all the great colors it comes in.) and features a simple Celtic Knot in the center reminiscent of the River Shannon and how it winds through Ireland.  A variety of beads are sewn on to give it some sparkle.
 
 
Pink Dogwood Necklace

I love when our pink dogwood in our front yard blooms - then I know spring has definitely arrived!  (Well, it has not bloomed yet but it should soon.)  This Pink Dogwood Necklace was fun and quick to make.  The addition of the pink-colored glass pearl beads (that I found at Hobby Lobby) makes for a very classy touch. 
 
You can also find the yarn I used at Hobby Lobby - Lizbeth Size 10 Crochet Cotton.  This was the first time I used this thread - it is often used for tatting so it holds its shape and the knots/twists in the stitches very well.
 
The pattern for this design can be found in the April 2016 issue of Crochet World  here or at your local craft or bookstore. (Just saw several copies at Michael's yesterday.)
