I posted some pics of a choker I made here. http://crochetedsass.blogspot.com/2009/08/my-first-crochet-necklace.html
I made more & finally worked out a pattern I like.
With #10 crochet cotton & #7 steel hook ch91,
slst in 2nd ch from hook,
slst in next 4 ch, ch6
*skip next 2 ch, dc in next ch, ch3* (25 times)
ch6, skip next 2 ch, slst in next 6 ch,
finish off & weave in ends.
Add clasp. I use cord tip endings. Like these.http://www.firemountaingems.com/shopping.asp?skw=KWFNTERMINATESPENDCAP And a lobster claw clasp.
Optional flower: I made a single layer flower from Nichole Heady's pattern with # 10 thread & #7 hook. Here's the post I did on her flowers. http://crochetedsass.blogspot.com/2009/08/flowers-by-nichole.html
I just left the end threads a little long & don't work in. Tie the flower to the 13th dc, add some clear glue to the knot in back. When it's dry trim ends.
Here's a pic of the new necklace.
