Here is another accessory pattern to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day – The Roses and Shamrock Necklace.
This pattern has been published in the February 2015 issue of Crochet World – The magazine can be purchased here.
This necklace uses traditional Irish crochet techniques for making roses and a shamrock. It is made with the lovely Nazli Gelin Garden 3 Egyptian Cotton crochet thread. Here it is shown with a simple white band that makes up the necklace length in between the motifs but I think it would also look great with simple strands of large white pearls.
Today my friend, Bonnie Barker, is one of the featured designers for the Crochetville National Crochet Month Blog Tour – be sure to check out her post.. Her new book (Contemporary Celtic Crochet) is a wonderful tribute to Ireland and filled with great instructions to make a variety of projects using crocheted cables. (See my review of this book here)
