BEAUTIFUL CROCHET CHOKER 6

Tiny triangles choker



The jewellery bug still reigns and I’m still working with new ideas for neck pieces or chokers.

If you’ve been following my blogs, then you will have paid attention to the title of this blog, you’ll see a nondescript “6”, which will indicate that this is not the first blog of chokers.  If you like what you see here, follow me via the different social media given at the bottom of this blog, for more of the same.. and lots of other free crochet stuff.

Welcome back as we work on this new challenge together.

Materials used : Today I’ve used the lovely Indian Red Rose metallic cotton yarn with a 1.75 mm crochet hook.

Skill level: Easy

Abbreviations used :
fdc : Foundation double crochet                             dc : Double crochet
ch(s) : chain(s                                                            ch-sp : chain space
sp(s) : space(s)                                                          rep : Repeat
hk : hook                                                                     yo : Yarn over
sk : Skip                                                                        lp(s) : Loop(s)
st(s) : Stitch(es)                                                         hdc : Half double crochet
trc : Triple / Treble crochet


Stitches used :
fdc : Foundation Double Crochet : This is a unique way of starting a project directly with a row of double crochet stitches.  This makes your whole project neat and even.. in a way that you need to do once, to agree!  If you are familiar with fsc, you’ll wonder why you never used this start before !

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3, I’d like to introduce this lovely new way of starting a dc row.  Do take a look at this self explanatory super video http://www.mooglyblog.com/chainless-starting-double-crochet/
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using the chainless dc start.

For this project we will need to ‘construct’ a small triangle and for that we will use an array of stitches, small to big back to small.  The different lengths of the stitches will create the triangle automaticaly. 
If you so desire, we will pop in a picot at the centre of the triangle.  This is also a space that you can insert a bead if desired, but if you so decide, please add your beads onto your yarn now. (Please read Note at the end)

Hooks on.. let’s go.

I like my foundation stitches, and have opted to start with the foundation double crochet. I urge you to try this stitch as it really gives a neat finish and in one row, you wil have the dc ‘created’.  It’s also a quick small project for you to try a new stitch.  Please check the top of this blog for a “how to”.



Start with fdc in multiples of 6 for the length or round neck circumference.  Turn. 

Row 1 : sc in the 1st fdc ; (ch 6, sk next 6 fdc, sc in the next fdc) ; rep (to) till end.  Turn.

In the following row, we will create our triangle, which is the long array of stitches all done in one ch-sp.
Row 2 : sc in the 1st sc ;
(1 sc ; 2 hdc ; 2 dc ; 1 trc ; 1 trc + picot ; 1 trc ; 2 dc ; 2 hdc ;
1 sc all in the next ch-6 sp) ;
*sk next sc, rep (to) once* ;
rep *to* till end ; sc in the last sc.  Turn.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Note : As I suggested earlier, you can throw in a bead either along with the picot, or in every alternate picot (i.e one triangle has a picot, the next one had a bead); or you can just add beads in the place of a picot all along.

Either way you are going to have a stunning choker. 

Do remember though that this is where you read all about this cute choker necklace.  So please add my blog link when you share and show off your project.  Thanks in advance.
