Crochet necklace

When the weather outside is horrible what better excuse than to cosy upto the fire and get cracking on some crafting! Here is a crochet necklace that I made. (I believe its called lariet which means without a clasp). It has a small pearl in each flower centre and the bigger flowers are interspersed with a smaller one.

A different way to wear it.

It could also be hung around a picture frame or mirror or draped over a bedhead (see multi uses!)
I wanted to do something with my twitchy fingers but didn't fancy sewing or knitting so found a couple of left over balls of cotton that I used for the crochet bedspread further down in the blog, and made the flower up as I went along. After a few false starts eventually made up a pattern for the flower. The 'tassels' on each end of the necklace have 4 pearly beads sewn on. Hope you like it.
