Blush Pink Pistachio Crocheted Chunky Bead Necklace


After making the Sweet Persimmons Crocheted Bead Necklace, I couldn't wait to make several more - if only my hands could crochet even faster and if only I had all imaginable colors to make endless color combinations! 



This time I tried 25 mm wooden beads for even more chunk.

Crochet on 25 mm wooden bead
7/1.65mm crochet hook
100% mercerized cotton, 3-light DK weight yarn

Make magic ring
r1 : ch1, 8sc in magic ring (8 st)
r2 : *2sc in each st* repeat 8 times (16 st)
r3 : *1sc in first st, 2sc in next st* repeat 8 times (24st)

String wood beads onto a ribbon or tube of sheer fabric. Tie knots in between beads if you prefer them more spaced out. Make a knot at end of each "end bead" to keep them in place.
