project #6 - beaded dance choker

DSCF0272

pattern used -
yarn used -
  • I started out with a navy blue size 3 crochet thread... but it was too chunky for the look that I wanted
  • so I tried a beige size 20 crochet thread... but it was too fine DSCF0265
  • I didn't have anything in between, so I decided to 'bulk up' the size 20 thread with some sewing cotton DSCF0268
  • love the effect of the beige, black and mustard combined
hook used -
  • 2.0mm steel hook
thoughts -
  • because I used a finer cotton, it didn't turn out long enough for a choker
  • it's a tiny bit big for a bracelet

I love those colors too. :) I have some threads I may use together with my beads. I just love your creativity and how you re-use things.
