Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along
This crochet necklace was designed for the Holiday Stashdown CAL 2016 (#HolidayStashdownCAL2016). If you’re not sure what that is, you can learn more in this post from the Underground Crafter. With this CAL, you can clean out your stash and end up with some beautiful items for holiday gifting, plus there are some really nice giveaway prizes to be won. The schedule of new patterns will ramp up as we get closer to the holiday too, so it’s a great time to join.
Customize your Necklace!
Use a clasp for a short necklace, or make it long enough to go over your head. Add beads or other decorations as desired to the center of each flower. Try using a different color thread for the flowers, or even make the whole design in fingering weight yarn for a more casual look.
Use your choice of pendant or charm on the drop part of the necklace, or change them out for different looks. You could even make an extra small flower and attach that to the bottom instead of a pendant
There are so many ways to make this design your own. Check out the projects on Ravelry for more inspiration!

Intermediate – Easy stitches, but I’m calling it intermediate because it’s done in thread.
Customizable to any length.
Gauge is not particularly important for this project. If you feel your stitches are coming out too tight or too loose for your taste, feel free to change hook sizes.
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
sc3tog = single crochet 3 stitches together (see special stitches)
puff = puff stitch (see special stitches)
sl st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es)
sp(s) = space(s)
rnd = round
yo = yarn over
Single Crochet 3 stitches together (sc3tog): (Yo and draw up a loop) in each of next 3 sc, yo and pull through all 4 loops on your hook.
Puff stitch (puff): (Yo, insert hook into specified st or ch, yo and draw up a loop) 3 times, yo and pull through all 7 loops on hook, ch 1 to close.
Flower mount: Work the following 3 rows where indicated in pattern below. This forms a little circle that you will be sewing a flower onto later.
- Row 1: 3 sc in 2nd ch from hook
- Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc
- Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc3tog.
With smaller hook, Ch 2, puff in 2nd ch from hook, (ch 1, puff in top of last puff) twice, ch 5, work flower mount (for center flower).
Ch 5, puff in 2nd ch from hook, ch 1, puff in top of last puff, ch 4, work flower mount, ch 4, *puff in 2nd ch from hook, ch 1, puff in top of last puff, ch 4, repeat from * until desired length is reached.
Secure working loop with a stitch marker and cut thread, leaving a 12 inch tail in case you want to make it longer or shorter later.
Feel free to add a few extra chains to the end if needed to get the size you want. I made mine about 10.5 inches on each side of the drop.
With smaller hook, join thread with sl st in the top of the sc3tog from row 3 of the center flower mount. Work the same as for left side, being sure to do the same number of repeats.
Check the sizing, make any adjustments, and then fasten off both sides. If not using a clasp, make sure the necklace is long enough to fit easily over your head.
Small Flower (make 2)
Rnd 1: With smaller hook, ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook, join with sl st in first st.
Rnd 2: Turn, *ch 2, (yo, insert hook in same st, yo and draw up a loop) 5 times, yo and pull through all 11 loops on hook, ch 2, sl st in same st (petal made),** sl st in next st, rep from * 5 times more, ending at ** on last repeat, fasten off. (6 petals).
With larger hook and with 2 strands of thread held together, repeat instructions for small flower.
- Sew flowers to flower mounts, with large flower on center mount, as shown below. If desired, sew beads into the center of each flower. Weave in flower ends.
- Using the starting tail, sew a jump ring securely to the end of the drop, and then weave in the tail. Do not attach a pendant yet.
- If not using a clasp, tie/sew the two sides together at the back and then weave in the ends.
- If using a clasp, tie or sew the clasp on using the ends, and then weave in the ends.
- Wash your necklace gently and lay it out flat to dry. For a little added stiffness, try using some liquid starch.
- Once the necklace is totally dry, attach a pendant or charm of your choice to the jump ring.
