I have made many items that I have given away either as gifts or to charity shops. This is an archive of all the items I crocheted before starting the Diploma that I still have in my house.

Nettle necklace

I got some wonderful nettle yarn from yarnyarn, who sell really exciting yarns that are ethically and environmentally produced, something I want to focus on a lot more. I wanted to make something that showed the lovely texture of the yarn so decided on this chain necklace. I made a very long chain on a generous-sized hook and folded it over to give 8 strands to the necklace. Then I bound black yarn around the chain at intervals to add some interest, and a chunky clasp that can be worn either decoratively at the front, or hidden away behind the neck. I am very pleased with the result. A statement necklace that has already drawn compliments.
