Multi-colour Thread Crochet Jewellery

In March 2011, I intended to publish patterns for crocheted jewellery using multi-colour thread. I had 6 sets of designs for earrings, necklaces, bracelets. I had several pattern testers who helped enormously in spotting errors in the patterns but for one reason or another, I never regained the confidence to publish the designs. I have always had difficulty using multi-colour threads because the colour combinations available   were often too harsh or unattractive. I wanted to come up with a way to change that. I used beads and also solid colour thread in combination with the multi-colour threads. Yet still, I wasn't satisfied with the results. One day I will get back to this project and make it better. I came up with a number of interesting stitches while making these designs and those need re-consideration even if the actual patterns will never get published.

Nevertheless, I was able to make designs from this initial effort. The patterns are freely available: Forest Candy and Seaside Butterfly - both using multi-colour thread.
