Wire Ball Crochet Necklace

This pretty wire ball crochet necklace is another one of those creations that was born out of an experiment gone wrong. I was trying out some new stitches with my wire and it didn’t work out so well; so I gave up and poured myself a cup of tea. As I sat there I fidgeted with the piece and ended up rolling it into a ball. And voilà … Another idea was born! I sat back down and made up a few more, this time using just regular crochet stitches. Then I strung them all on a strand of Sparkling Taupe yarn from Lion Brand’s Party Bonbon Collection. Want to make your own …

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A piece of sport weight yarn cut to your desired length
  • 30 gauge silver wire
  • D hook
  • sewing needle

Ch 6.

Row 1: Work 1 sc in second ch from hook and each ch across, turn — 5 sts.

Rows 2 through 4: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 sc in each st across, turn — 5 sts.

Row 5: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 sc in each st across — 5 sts.

Fasten off. No need to weave in ends; just fold the tail over itself a couple times so there isn’t a pointy end.

 

Now the fun part! Roll the little wire square into a ball. Using your sewing needle, string the balls onto your yarn. If desired, you can make little knots to keep them where you want them, although you may not need to; mine stayed right where I put them. Depending on the length of your necklace, you can either knot it in the back to just pull over your head or add some jewelry clasps for a shorter length.
