How to Crochet Necklaces

Now that you know how cool crochet necklaces really are, it’s time to master the skill of bringing them to reality.

With wire crochet, you can create some of the beautiful accessories from a necklace, bracelets to pendant.

Most fashion wires are made up of colored copper. They are soft and very easy to work on. For this task, you will learn using a size 8 crochet hook. First get the wire and twist to create a chain. Don't worry if your loops are not even. The fun part with wire crochet is you can pull and tag on your project at the end.

There are many patterns to choose from, you can use the slip stitch pattern, single crochet, half double, or double crochet on your project. With this project, you'll use the slip stitch pattern. Therefore, make the pattern by going back to your chain and slip stitching all across. Always flatten your work at the end. You will end up creating two rows of slip stitch. 


From here you can pull the chain in both directions or flatten it down or use the hook to straighten the rings. Proceed to work the chain stitches until the chain is long enough to wrap around your neck. Finish off by cutting the wire, place the stopper and trim it.

How to Crochet Necklaces with Beads

For a chunky look, you can go for beaded crochet necklaces. You will need to have:

  • Artistic wire in 28 gauge
  • Variety of beads - 47 for this project
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Nipper tool
  • Letter I crochet hook
  • Sterling silver stopper

First, take the wire, loosen it and string 15 beads randomly on the wire. Take your hook and lay the wire and twist it, then take the wire and pull it through the hook. Then start making a simple chain stitch. Make 14 blank stitches before picking up any beads. You can then start dropping the beads one by one while you pick up the wire as you proceed. Remember to put a blank stitch in between each bead until you get all the 15 beads on the wire.

After you have all your 15 beads on the wire, then make 14 blank stitches. Use a nipper tool to clip your wire at the end while leaving some room before cutting it. Then take the hook and pull it through. Try and straighten the strands to push the beads in to make it easier to work with. In total, you'll have three strands, each with 15 beads.

Next, take all the ends of the three strands and twist them together with your fingers. Then start braiding the three strands together while keeping them flat to avoid them from getting tangled. Once you've finished braiding, twist the wire together.

Trim the wires evenly, then take one bead and put them on end and take the round-nose pliers and make a loop, put the stopper, wrap it and trim it. Do it similarly to the other side. And there you have it. Your crochet necklace with beads.

Crocheting was introduced in Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century. Women and children were trained in the art. Within a few years, the Irish had become skillful enough to supply wire crochet jewelry in Dublin, London, Paris, Rome, and New York.


Owing to its long history of crochet jewelry, Ireland has an extensive list of crochet jewelry patterns. From simple Irish crochet, traditional Irish crochet, to the luxurious 3-dimensional lace- distinctive with its raised crocheted petals, flowers, and leaves stitched to a net of chain stitches with picots (called, the filling). They are all feminine, romantic and beautiful.
