If you’re like me and love to crochet jewelry, here is a FREE crochet pattern, compliments of Annie’s and the “Knit and Crochet Now!” TV show. I designed this necklace a few years ago in the “Intermeshing Crochet” technique, in which 2 layers of crochet mesh are crocheted/woven together to make one layer of “intermeshed/interlocked” fabric! To do this technique, you crochet one row at a time, switching back and forth between the rows to make them intermeshed together. It’s a great technique and this necklace is a nice, small project to give the technique a try. You can find the download for this FREE crochet pattern here.
The pattern includes instructions for the pendant, the chain and the hanging loop. You supply 2 colors of size 10 crochet thread, a size 7 (1.65 mm) steel crochet hook, a needle, stitch markers and a jewelry clasp.
You can read more about this technique, see photos of both sides of the pendant (they are not the same!) and read the corrections to the pattern that I posted in this blog post. Note: If you’re going to make this necklace, please don’t forget to read and/or print out the corrections in this linked blog post. When the pattern was tech edited, the turning chains were moved incorrectly to the wrong rows. Most of the black turning chains should be “ch 4” and most of the blue turning chains should be “ch 2”.
I hope you enjoy this quick project and will share photos of your finished “Double Take Pendant Necklace” with me.
