Featured Free Pattern: Cotton Lovers Wedding Necklace

Here's an old pattern I'd like to bring some attention to. I made this pattern in 2012 when I got my first copies of Duplet and MOD Zhurnal magazines. The inspiration came from those wonderful magazines featuring Russian and Ukrainian crochet and knit designs.

To make this necklace, motifs are crocheted separately and then sewn onto the strap. So some sewing skills are necessary to successfully complete this project! How you arrange and sew the motifs onto the strap is important to how the finished necklace will look and sit around the neck.

Your choice of pearl beads and clasp is also very important. Genuine freshwater pearls will be gorgeous, or perhaps Swarovski crystals. Choose a clasp that has weight to keep the necklace in place.

You can find the free pattern on Crochetology at http://www.crochetology.net/2015/05/cotton-lovers-bridal-necklace.html If you make a project using this pattern please share it on Ravelry to inspire others. Enjoy!
