Gehaakte ketting / Crocheted necklace

I have not been able to finish my summer scarf, because I did not have the chance to buy new yarn.
I had hoped that I could finish the scarf with the yarn I had (4 balls), but I think I have made the scarf too wide. So I need 1 ball yarn extra for the finishing touch.
In the meantime I came across some crochet necklace designs by Lia Govers on Ravelry.
I really like them.

I started with Lia’s Crochet-texture necklace, a free pattern on Ravelry. I found the instructions on how to assemble the necklace not so easy to follow, so I decided to try my own design.
This turned out not so well as I hoped and you can see.
So I decided to add some buttons, to hide the irregularities.

I found some ‘vintage’ buttons from my mother-in-law’s sewing box. I wasn’t sure I liked them.
(There were 14, while on the package it was said there should be 15. my mother-in-law must have used one.)
They are 18mm ø and costed 18 francs. My mother-in-law must have bought them in Belgium where she has a log cabin since 1978.

I laid the buttons on the necklace and I noticed that they were a bit translucent. That I liked.
Sewing buttons is not my favorite pastime, but I succeeded in sewing on eleven.

I forgot to take a picture of me, or someone else, showing the necklace.

Have a good weekend!

2 opmerkingen:

  1. Ziet er toch leuk uit Estella. Ga je de ketting dragen?

  2. Ik vind het een zomerketting die op een enigszins gebruinde huid het mooist uitkomt, denk ik.
    Een enigszins gebruinde huid heb ik nog niet kunnen opdoen :-(
    Dus dat duurt nog even.
