Crochet Flower Necklace
Start with DMC floss in your favorite colors. I used white, bright blue, light green, green, pink, hot pink, yellow, orange, and purple. You will also need pearl beads, a chain, and a clasp. (or repurpose an old chain necklace you may have). Have handy your scissors, jewelry pliers, a sewing needle (small enough to thread the beads), and a small crochet hook (I used US C2/2.75 mm).
sl st = slip stitch
st = stitch
dc = double crochet
tr = triple crochet
Tie the ends together neatly on the back of the flower and weave in the ends. Using 2 or 3 strands of matching thread, sew the pearl bead into the center of the flower.
Next create the length of chain you want for the necklace and attach the clasp.
Lay out your flowers along the chain in your desired pattern, making sure each flower is either on the chain or touching another flower. Sew the flowers to the chain or adjacent flower with 2 or 3 matching threads.
